Survey results released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University show that just over half of American voters say that Trump is “not fit” for the office of the presidency. That number includes 57 percent of independents and 94 percent of Democrats. A wide majority of Republicans surveyed, 84 percent, said that Trump is fit for office.
Trump faced heavy criticism last month for his response to violence in Charlottesville, Va., that left one dead and dozens injured. In his response to the attack, Trump blamed “many sides” for the violence that occurred at the “Unite the Right” rally.
Six in ten Americans say Trump is doing more to divide the country than bring it together. Just over half, 51 percent, said they are “embarrassed” by Trump’s presidency.Quinnipiac University polled 1,412 voters nationwide between September 21 – 26.
