A majority of Americans believe President Trump is tearing the country apart, according to a new Fox News poll released Wednesday.
The poll found that fifty-six percent of respondents said Trump is “tearing the country apart,” compared to the 33 percent who think the president is “drawing the country together.”
Ninety-three percent of Democrats said Trump is dividing the nation while only 15 percent of Republicans agreed with that statement, as did 53 percent of independents. Sixty-eight percent of Republicans said Trump was drawing the country together.
Trump earned a 41 percent approval rating, his worst approval ratings in the Fox News poll to date. 55 percent said they disapproved of the job he’s doing.
Fifty-six percent of respondents said that Trump doesn’t respect racial minorities, and only 35 percent approve of his response to the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., earlier this month.
Respondents also said they believe Trump dislikes the media more than white supremacists by a 70 percent to 13 percent margin.
