Over half of Americans believe that Donald Trump is unfit to be President, according to a recent poll.
The poll, by Quinnipiac University, found that while men are evenly split on the question, 63% of women said that Trump was not qualified to run the country. In addition, it was found that 94% of black voters thought that the ex-reality star was unfit to hold office.
Surprisingly, 14% of Republicans also share this view.
The university polled 1,412 registered voters and found that 56% considered Trump to be unsuitable for the position as President.
The results also showed considerable discontent towards the performance of Republicans in Congress by a margin of 78% to 15, displaying a serious lack of faith in the current government across the board.
Since being elected President in 2016, Trump has made the news for his controversial opinions and his unconventional way of dealing with serious world issues.
69% of voters also agreed that the President should stop using Twitter.
Almost two-thirds of participants surveyed disapproved of the President’s performance when it came to race relations, ranging from 55% of whites to 95% of blacks.
These results were taken after the backlash caused by Trump’s ambiguous response to the far-right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, when he stated that he thought there was ‘blame on both sides.’
Assistant poll director, Tim Malloy said "There is no upside. With an approval rating frozen in the mid-30s, his character and judgement questioned, President Donald Trump must confront the harsh fact that the majority of American voters feel he is simply unfit to serve in the highest office in the land.
"A divider, responsible for the deepening chasm of racial discord. That is the inescapable characterisation of President Trump from voters who see race relations deteriorating on his watch."Images courtesy of Gage Skidmore and Anthony Crider.
