Over Half Of Voters Think Trump Is 'Tearing The Country Apart'

"What most disappoints me is he's such an incredibly flawed individual who has articulated so numerous values that I hold dear", said Trump voter Tony Sciullo, an insurance company president.

A new Pew Research Center poll finds that an average of 60 percent of Americans find words like "selfish" and "prejudice" to be apt descriptions of President Donald Trump.

15-21 among 1,893 adults, finds that 15% of Americans say they agree with Trump on all or almost all issues, while another 18% say they agree with him on many but not all issues. Only 11% of them say they have no concerns about what he's doing, while another 16% say obstruction from other people concerns them.

Members of a bipartisan focus group in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania had harsh words for President Donald Trump on Tuesday, calling him "outrageous, ' 'disastrous, ' 'contemptible, ' 'dishonest, ' 'narcissistic" and 'crazy'. Trump's point men on tax reform: Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and National Economic Council director Gary Cohn - both veterans of Goldman Sachs.

Brian Rush, a registered Republican, said he wants a president 'to be presidential, someone who is calm, focused.

RealClearPolitics, after aggregating the last 11 national surveys released between August 8 and August 30, found that Trump had an average approval rating of 38.5 percent and an average disapproval rating of 57 percent. Trump is far more popular and more influential with Republican primary voters than any members of Congress and any member of the United States Senate.

Republican voters approve of President Trump's criticism of GOP senators.

Respondents were similarly split on how they felt about Trump's response to the Charlottesville protests, with 72 percent of Republicans approving of the president's response and 91 percent of Democrats disapproving.

"Maybe we shouldn't be doing this, but we're doing the right thing", said Trump, a billionaire businessman.

Trump has the street instincts to hit back hard against those whom he believes have wronged him, a list that at present appears to include Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) as well as GOP Sens. However, more cite this concern after the August 12 violence in Charlottesville, Virginia than did so before that point. Trump tells supporters, "I think Congress is going to make a comeback". Trump draws less confidence in his ability to make wise decisions about immigration and the use of nuclear weapons (40% each). If the breakdown of the rule of law and the institutions of government troubles them, it doesn't trouble them enough to give up the prospect of getting the wealthiest Americans their 100th tax break of the last four decades.

Throughout the two-hour discussion, Trump's demeanor and rhetoric loomed large, but nearly no mention was made of the ongoing investigation into possible contacts between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 election. For negative terms, majorities say that the traits selfish (65%) and prejudiced (55%) describe Trump very or somewhat well.

Pollsters also found that 52 percent of all those surveyed agreed that the president is "not tough enough" in his dealings with Russian Federation. But there is a stark partisan divide: 74% of Democrats say Trump is not tough enough, compared with just 26% of Republicans.

You see, a very large percentage of Republicans refuse to acknowledge Trump's overt bigotry and divisiveness - or any other glaring character flaws.
