Most Americans say Trump's behavior 'not what I expect from a president'

26 August, 2017, 01:19 | Author: Kelly Sanders
  • 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 

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. Quinnipiac says this is Trump's worst score on the question.

The George Washington University poll found that 71 percent of voters had that view of Trump's comportment in office, while 27 percent disagreed that his behavior was not what they expected. 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 vehicle attack a day later, that "many sides" were involved.

He also gets a negative 59% rating on his overall job approval - down from a 57% approval rating on August 17th.

The poll, which you can view in its entirety here, shows 59 percent of voters believe Trump is encouraging white supremacist groups, and 64 percent believe those groups pose a threat to the country.

American voters disapprove 55 - 40 percent of the way the news media covers Trump, and disapprove 62 - 35 percent of the way the president talks about the media.

So why not a smart speaker? Samsung is reportedly close to launching a smart speaker to compete with Amazon's Echo and others. Bixby is now available in more than 200 countries , which means that Samsung will get more services support onboard.

Two percent say it has decreased and 32% say it hasn't changed.

Fifty-four percent trust the media compared to 36 percent who said they trust the president.

"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 global conflict" (29 percent disagreed)", the poll said.

A majority of Americans agree that President Trump could inadvertently engage the United States in an worldwide conflict due to his rhetoric, according to a new survey released by the George Washington University Battleground Poll.
