Fifty-four percent trust the media compared to 36 percent who said they trust the president. 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.

A Quinnipiac poll published on Wednesday found that only 3 percent of voters believe that white supremacists have been demoralized by Trump's inconsistent statements about pro-Confederate marches and neo-Nazi violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, CNN reported.

On the subject of tweeting, 69 percent of voters think President Trump should stop tweeting from his personal account.

Missouri state senator says she made a 'mistake' with Trump assassination comment
But Missouri's Republican governor and lieutenant governor have said senators should oust her from office if she doesn't resign. Earlier in the day, Chappelle-Nadal was removed from all committee assignments by Senate Democratic Caucus leader Sen.

President Donald Trump promised to bring a fresh, outsider approach to the Oval Office, but about 7 in 10 voters nonetheless say the commander in chief's behavior "is not what I expect from a president", according to a poll released Thursday. Thirty-five percent of those surveyed said they agree with Trump on such issues.

Sixty-eight percent of registered voters said Trump's actions and rhetoric "could get us accidentally involved in an global conflict", while 29 percent disagreed with that statement, the poll found.

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