POLL: Majority Say Trump Has Emboldened Racists

Just out from Quinnipiac University:

President Trump is racist, 49 percent of voters say, while 47 percent say he is not racist. But 50 percent of voters say the main motive for Trump’s immigration policies is “a sincere interest in controlling our borders,” while 44 percent say the main motive is “racist beliefs.”

The lack of civility in politics is a serious problem, American voters say 91 – 7 percent. While 47 percent of voters blame Trump more for this lack of civility, 37 percent blame the Democrats more. Voters say 55 – 39 percent that Trump has emboldened people who hold racist beliefs to express those beliefs publicly.
