QU Poll: Voters believe President Trump dividing country

QU Poll: Voters believe President Trump dividing country

The president has said on several occasions that he condemns white-supremacist groups and believes all racist sentiment is "evil", but his own recounting of his words has omitted controversial phrases that aroused the most opposition - that "both sides" were responsible, or, as he said after the fatal hit-and-run auto attack a day later, that "many sides" were involved. The poll also found that 42 percent of voters approve of the job Trump has done so far in office, while 55 percent disapprove.

Similarly, a majority, 71 percent, said Trump's "behavior is not what I expect from a president".

"For the most part, honestly, these are really, really dishonest people", Trump said.

Half of voters oppose removing Confederate statues from public spaces, while 39% support it, Quinnipiac reports, with support much higher (67%) among black voters. Just 38 per cent said they would choose a Republican.

For some comparison, in the same survey, 5% of voters said prejudice against minority groups was "not a problem at all" in the US.

Yes, it's true President Donald Trump has now explicitly condemned white supremacy groups - but virtually no one in the United States thinks his comments and behavior have actually discouraged any white supremacist groups.

According to the poll released on Thursday, President Donald Trump is doing more to divide the country, 62 percent of voters said, while 31 percent said he is doing more to unite the country. Thirty-five percent of those surveyed said they agree with Trump on such issues.

Almost seven in 10 voters think President Donald Trump's behavior could accidentally embroil the U.S.in an "international conflict", according to the latest George Washington University battleground poll.

The poll surveyed 1,009 registered voters nationwide from August 13-17, and it had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
