Americans Are Sharply Divided Over Trump's Charlottesville Response, Poll Shows

Share

The poll found that almost two-thirds of Americans consider the attack that killed Heather Heyer in Charlottesville domestic terrorism.

White supremacists clashed with demonstrators who opposed racism and it ended in death and injury in Charlottesville.

The poll, conducted through and after Trump defended Tuesday his initial failure to specifically denounce neo-Nazi groups for their role in the attack, found rising disapproval of the president's response.

The poll, which was started before Trump's remarks, showed more people (58 percent) disapproved of his response when they were asked on Tuesday and Wednesday, than on Monday - when 52 percent disapproved. Most Americans-again 55 percent-also disagree with his blaming of "many sides" for the weekend's violence. A majority of Republicans - 68 percent - say Trump's description of the events was accurate, while a majority of Democrats and independents say it was not accurate.

"We will continue to confront and condemn hatred, bigotry, and violence", said Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan.

"Okay, what about the alt-left that came charging at [indiscernible] - excuse me - what about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the alt right?"

Disagreement over President Donald Trump's reaction to violent protests in Charlottesville, Va., is divided along partisan lines, a survey revealed Thursday.

Thirty-five 35 percent said it was accurate.

Only 12 percent of those polled believe the president's policies encourage unity. Forty-four percent said they have caused division, and 39 percent said they have had little effect.
