Redux: NIdaho Friendly To Minorities

From DFO”s files (25 years ago):

The most likely Idahoan to have friendly feelings toward minorities is at least 56 years old, well-educated and living in the five North Idaho counties. That's the picture painted by a statewide poll gauging racial and religious tolerance. … The results were distributed today by the Northwest Coalition Against Malicious Harassment and the Idaho Human Rights Commission. … In releasing the report, coalition President Tony Stewart said it reconfirms his commitment to education's role in weeding out prejudice.

Question: Would you say today that North Idaho is the friendliest place in the state for minorities?
