A new poll from Quinnipiac University found 62% of voters say he is dividing the country, while 31% say he is doing more to unite it.

Just more than a third of American voters (35%) say Trump hasn't had an impact on white supremacist groups, and six in 10 voters (59%) say he's encouraged them. To get a number this low, you need virtual unanimity across all groups: only 6% of Republicans, 4% of people over 65, 3% of whites and 3% of independents said white supremacists were discouraged by Trump's behavior and comments.

Similarly, a majority, 71 percent, said Trump's "behavior is not what I expect from a president".

In a poll released on August 17, the president's approval rating had dropped to 35 percent.

Some 55% of American voters say there is too much prejudice in the nation and 40% say there is too much political correctness - the widest margin for prejudice since the question first was asked in June 2016.
