The Majority Of Americans Think Trump Supports White Supremacy: Poll

Donald Trump spoke after the Charlottesville white supremacist rally, but his speech left people questioning whether he approved of it or not. The president said both white supremacists and counter-demonstrators were to blame.

Trump did not speak out against the rally, he just simply said that the left is just as bad as the alt-right.

CBS News did a survey to see exactly what people thought of Trump’s speech in response to the rally.

According to the findings, 55% of Americans disapprove of the way Trump responded, while 34% approve of it.

The same poll found that 55% of Americans also disagreed with Trump’s assessment that both sides were to blame.

“Americans think that President Trump dropped the ball in his handling of this crisis,” said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion.

The poll also showed that 63% of Americans saw the decision by a Nazi sympathizer to plow into a group of opponents, killing one woman, as an act of terrorism.

“President Trump’s reluctance to label the fatal crash in Charlottesville as domestic terrorism is out of step with not only two-thirds of Americans, overall, but with people regardless of their race or political party,” Miringoff said. “The president’s sentiments clearly do not line up with the American people.”

The CBS News poll of 1,223 adults was conducted Aug. 14-16 and had a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
