Poll: Many Whites Hold Prejudice Against Blacks

A recent poll by Yahoo news and the Associated Press suggests that at least 40 percent of white Americans hold some negative views of blacks, and suggests that one-third of Democrats also have these views. The poll results indicate that these views may have an impact on the polls in the upcoming election.

Ron Fornier and Errin Haines, both of the Associated Press, discuss the findings and how they could likely influence the general election in November.
