Since the 2008 election, fewer people in the U.S. now say that Barack Obama's presidency is one of the most important advances for blacks, according to a Gallup poll released Thursday.Imagine that.
The poll found that only about a third of respondents, 32 percent, said that Mr. Obama's presidency is one of the most important advances for the black community, which is down from the 71 percent who said the same immediately after his election.
Among blacks, 71 percent in October 2009 considered Mr. Obama's election as one of the most important advances for their community and 51 percent believe that's the case today.
