Majority say Donald Trump is dividing America, as approval rating falls

The Morning Consult  Politico survey showed President Trump at an all-new low with only 39 percent of registered voters approving of the job he's doing leading the country 

Sixty-two of respondents say the president is doing more to divide the country, while 31 percent say he is doing more to unite the country.

Seventy-one percent say his behavior is not what they expect from a president, while 27 percent disagree.

Some 55% of American voters say there is too much prejudice in the nation and 40% say there is too much political correctness - the widest margin for prejudice since the question first was asked in June 2016. Meanwhile, nine in 10 Democrats say they think Trump encouraged white supremacists with his comments and behavior - nearly two-thirds of Democrats say he did so intentionally.

Further, the poll finds Trump's approval rating at 41 percent.

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


"A$3 large majority of voters - 71 percent - agreed his "behavior is not what I expect from a president" (27 percent disagreed), and 68 percent agreed his "words and actions could get us accidentally involved in an worldwide conflict" (29 percent disagreed)", the poll said.

A mere 3% of American voters in a new Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday say Trump's actions as president have discouraged white supremacists.

The Quinnipiac Poll reported that 39 percent of voters supported removing Confederate statues, compared to 50 percent who said they disagreed.

The survey was conducted after Trump vowed North Korea will face "fire, fury and frankly power" should it continue making threats against the United States. And 3% of American voters said they "haven't heard enough" about Trump to say if they have a favorable or unfavorable view him.

The poll surveyed 1،009 registered voters nationwide between August 13 and August 17.
