Trump's media strategy could be working

Trump's media strategy could be working

I hit them with everything. He drew widespread criticism from many sectors of American society for what was seen as his reluctance to fix blame for the incidents in Charlottesville - most recently his assertion that "both sides" bore responsibility.

The Quinnipiac poll was conducted after the rally in Charlottesville, where white nationalists clashed with counter-protesters, resulting in three deaths and at least 34 injuries.

Are racial tensions on the rise in America?

A new poll from Quinnipiac University found that most Americans believe President Trump is doing more to divide the country than to unite it.

White supremacist groups pose a threat to the United States, 64% of voters say.

President Trump's overall job approval was at 35 percent, while 59 percent disapprove. However, opinion surveys have shown there is no broad support for such measures.

In a poll earlier this week by US public radio and television networks and Marist University, 62 percent of respondents said the statues should not be removed.

Half of voters oppose removing Confederate statues from public spaces, while 39% support it, Quinnipiac reports, with support much higher (67%) among black voters. "There are some people on the left that are kind of outrageous", Graham said.

Voters say that President Donald Trump's inconsistent condemnations of racism have not discouraged white supremacists, according to a survey released this week. And 3% of American voters said they "haven't heard enough" about Trump to say if they have a favorable or unfavorable view him.

Why does President Trump continue his ferocious attacks on media as "fake news" and "really bad people" who "don't love our country?" Twenty-seven percent disagree with this statement.

The poll, which had a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points, surveyed 1,009 registered voters nationwide from August 13 to 17.
