Conducted October 31-November 1, 2014

1* How closely have you been following recent news reports about the upcoming midterm elections?

2* How important are racial issues to your vote?

3* Do political candidates discuss racial issues too much or too little in their campaigns? Or is the level of discussion about right?

4* Do most politicians raise racial issues to address real problems or to get elected?

5* Think for a moment about people who oppose President Obama's policies. Do people oppose the president’s policies primarily because they believe the policies are bad or is their opposition due to racism?
