The majority of Americans said they think the police treat white people better than they treat black people, according to a new poll.

Fifty-seven percent of surveyed Americans said they think the police treat white people better than they treat black people, according to a CBS News poll released Tuesday.

The poll found that 39 percent said they think the police treat both groups equally, and just 4 percent said they think the police treat black people better than white people.

The margin is even wider among black Americans. An overwhelming 78 percent of surveyed black Americans said police treat white people better, and just 19 percent said the police treat both groups equally, according to the poll.

Among surveyed white people, the views are more evenly split with a slim 52 percent majority saying the police treat white people better and 45 percent saying the police treat both groups equally, based on the poll.
