( – In a Rasmussen Reports poll released on Monday, 70 percent of voters indicated their belief that politicians only raise racial issues to be elected, a far cry from the 18 percent who believe politicians raise the issues to address real problems.

Forty-two percent of voters say political candidates raised racial issues too much, 21 percent believed those issues were raised too little, and 29 percent said the subject was broached the right amount of times.

Republicans were the most skeptical about racial issues being broached, with the overwhelming majority (82 percent) saying politicians did it just to garner votes.

Fifty-five percent of Democrats felt the same, while 74 percent of unaffiliated voters shared the same concern.

According to the poll, 43 percent of participants felt Democrats have historically done more for Black Americans, while 38 percent believe Republicans have done more for Black Americans. Sixteen percent feel both major parties have contributed equally to Black Americans.

Who did more for Black Americans fell on party lines: 74 percent of Democrats felt their party had done more for this demographic, while 71 percent of Republicans felt the same about the GOP.

Forty-five percent of Black voters, 20 percent of Hispanic voters, 15 percent of White voters, and 25 percent of other minorities felt politicians discuss racial issues too little in their campaigning.

However, the overwhelming majority of every racial group — 73 percent of White voters, 66 percent of Hispanic and other minority voters, and 61 percent of Black voters — believe politicians discuss the subject solely to be elected.
