“He’s been a good governor, and he’s been good, as far as I know, to black people,” Butler said.
In an interview Saturday, Northam said he wants to heal the wounds that some feel after the racist photo emerged.
“There are still some very deep wounds in Virginia, and especially in the area of equity. … There are ongoing inequities to access to things like education, health care, mortgages, capital, entrepreneurship,” he said. “And so this has been a real, I think, an awakening for Virginia. It has really raised the level of awareness for racial issues in Virginia. And so we’re ready to learn from our mistakes.”
Other results from the poll revealed about a third of Virginians think Attorney General Mark Herring should resign after he admitted to wearing blackface at a party in college. Most residents are still undecided – 65 percent – on the future of Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, who is accused of sexual assault by two women. Fairfax denies the accusations.
Respondents were not asked about the second allegation against him, that was made public Friday after the poll began.
