AP Poll Racial Gap Optimism-3

Americorps volunteer John Harris III, who is helping to coordinate a jobs fair program, talks to job seekers in Washington, Wednesday, July 31, 2013. Americans' attitudes about their economic future are now sharply divided by race, with whites significantly less likely than blacks or Hispanics to think they can improve their own standard of living. Optimism among minorities now far outpaces that of whites, with the widest margin by race since at least 1987. The hopeful include Harris, a recent graduate of historically black Howard University who now works to reduce homelessness through the AmeriCorps program. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta)
