Brown: Trump's Charlottesville comments show he's 'unfit for office'

Donald Trump's approval rating sinks to new low, latest poll finds

Support for Trump's response was low across different races as well, with 31 percent of white Americans, 20 percent of Hispanics, and only 13 percent of African-Americans saying they agreed with his statements.

Instead, Trump suggested that the "alt-left" had an equal role in the violence, and also stated that if Lee's statue could be taken down then former Presidents George Washington's and Thomas Jefferson's could as well.

Trump was widely criticized, even by a number of members of his own party, for seemingly equating the neo-Nazis with those on the 'alt-left, ' as the president put it, who were marching against them.

Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, on Wednesday said Trump "made a awful mistake" by blaming both sides.

That same poll found a majority of Republicans would support postponing the 2020 presidential election until the country can ensure only USA citizens are able to vote, if President Trump suggested it. That's because Independents sided with Democrats in most of their responses. "Do they have any semblance of guilt?"

Trump has vacillated in his response to the Charlottesville violence since the weekend.

The Quinnipiac University survey found that 39 percent approved of his job performance while 57 percent did not.

The Real Clear Politics polling average of all of the recent presidential approval ratings polls gives Trump a 37.8 percent approval rating with 56.1 percent disapproval.

46% disapprove, a decrease from 52% on August 2.

And only 37% of Americans think the President is honest, with 21% of Republicans saying that is the case, 64% of independents, and 86% of Democrats.

-The poll asked an overarching question. Another 36 percent say "not so good" or "poor". Just 12 percent answered "racial unity, while 44 percent answered "racial division". The sample size was 1,125 adults for a margin of error of ±2.9 percentage points for the full sample.

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,361 voters nationwide from August 9 to August 15, and the poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
