Elite and Mass Interaction V. Kati Garren and M.
Blair Casebere, Spring 1. Elite and Mass Opinions and Race Public policy appears to reflect the attitudes of elites rather than masses, and national policy has shaped mass opinion more than mass opinion has shaped national policy.
Black-White Opinion Differences Relatively few whites believe that there is much discrimination in society, while most blacks believe discrimination is very prevalent. However, both whites and blacks believe that having Mr.
Obama as our president will improve race relations. Majority Opinion Lags Behind Policy White majority opinion generally follows public policy rather than leads it. Support for civil rights will continue to come from the educated and affluent white people.
