A 1999 Gallup poll found that 95% of white Southerners were willing to vote for a black president. Gallup polls conducted in 2012 and 2015 found about the same. As explained by Gallup, 95% is "essentially universal willingness to state to an interviewer that the race of a candidate for president would make no difference."
