Ralph Northam: Virginians split on calls for governor to resign after blackface scandal, poll finds


Virginians split on calls for governor to resign after blackface scandal, poll findsVirginians are deadlocked over whether Governor Ralph Northam should step down after the emergence of a racist photo from the Democrat’s 1984 medical school yearbook, according to a Washington Post-Schar School poll. Following the release of the image last week, which shows a man in blackface next to another in a Ku Klux Klan outfit, there have been demands for Mr Northam to resign. Mr Northam counts higher support among black residents – who say he should remain in office by a margin of 58 per cent to 37 per cent – than among whites, who are more evenly divided.
