According to the Pew Research Center, in June, 48% of Black adults and 50% of Latino adults said they were "hopeful" about the state of the US. That changed significantly in November.
The November version of the survey found that 64% of adults from both demographics expressed more confidence. In comparison, 50% of white adults and 54% of Asian adults said they were more hopeful and enthusiastic about the country's direction.

The Pew Research Center survey also found that that 51% of Black adults and 52% of Latino adults said they were less "fearful." In comparison, 67% of Black adults and 68% of Latino adults expressed fear during the June version of the survey.
According to the report, white and Asian adults maintained about the same amount of fear since surveyed in June, at 66% and 65%, respectively.
