On the subject of tweeting, 69 percent of voters think President Trump should stop tweeting from his personal account. Meanwhile, nine in 10 Democrats say they think Trump encouraged white supremacists with his comments and behavior - nearly two-thirds of Democrats say he did so intentionally.

The poll found USA voters were more pleased with the way Trump is handling the economy, with 50 percent approval, but foreign affairs were negative areas for Trump with 53 percent disapproval for how the North Korea situation is being handled.

"For the most part, honestly, these are really, really dishonest people", Trump said.

More than half of voters, 55%, said that there is too much prejudice in American society, while 40% said there is too much "political correctness".

He also gets a negative 59% rating on his overall job approval - down from a 57% approval rating on August 17th. Just 38 per cent said they would choose a Republican.


Prejudice against minority groups is a "very serious" problem, 50 percent of voters say, while 31 percent say it is "somewhat serious", a new high for these numbers.

A new poll from Quinnipiac University found that most Americans believe that President Donald Trump is doing more to divide the country than to unite it.

The survey was conducted after Trump vowed North Korea will face "fire, fury and frankly power" should it continue making threats against the United States.

Fifty-four percent trust the media compared to 36 percent who said they trust the president. Thirty-five percent of those surveyed said they agree with Trump on such issues.

The poll surveyed 1,009 registered voters nationwide August 13-17 and included a protocol for reaching mobile phone users.
