New Survey Of Online Daters Also Shows Improved Perception Of Interracial Relationships

 

Singles Open to Interracial Relationships Because of President Obama: Poll

 

 

MIAMI BEACH, Fla.,  -- As the Country marks President Obama's first year in office, and the 24th celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the face of race relations has altered drastically. Crediting President Obama's election, 54% said that race relations improved significantly since he took office, according to a new poll by the Pew Research Center. With an African American holding the highest position of power in the United States, how has that affected interracial relationships? Leading online dating websites Date.com (www.date.com), Matchmaker.com (www.matchmaker.com), and Amor.com (www.amor.com), polled its members in December 2009 to see how they felt about interracial relationships.

The majority of single men and women, 69% of males and 75% of females, are more open to having an interracial relationship because President Obama is African American. Additionally, singles felt that the perception of an interracial couple has changed drastically, both helped by President Obama as well as other high profile celebrity couples such aHalle Berry and Gabriel Aubry, Seal and Heidi KlumTaye Diggs and Idina Menzel, and Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery. 80% of women versus 61.6% of men felt that people were no longer prejudiced against interracial couples.

In a new nationwide survey of thousands of single men, we asked: President Barack Obama has rewritten the history of race relations in this Country, but does it also extend towards interracial couples? Are you more open to having an interracial relationship now that Obama is President?

Follows are the complete results:

Yes: 69%

We also asked: Do you think it's easier to be in an interracial relationship because Barack Obama is our President?

Follows are the complete results:

Yes, I think people are much more open-minded now than ever before: 61.6%

No, interracial couples will always face prejudice, regardless of the race of our President: 38.4%
