President Trump is racist, 49 percent of voters say in new Quinnipiac University poll
By Lee Harris

"Forty-nine percent of Americans, including 11 percent of Republicans, believe President Trump is racist, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. What's more, the poll found, 22 percent of Republicans and 55 percent of voters think he “has emboldened people who hold racist beliefs to express those beliefs publicly.”
"Only 38 percent of Americans believe that President Trump is honest, with 18 percent of Republicans and 93 percent of Democrats agreeing that he can't be trusted."

There can be no one else to blame for that except Trump who creates that perception in people and perception is real. Perhaps if he actually tried to help those people whom just about 50% of those polled feel he is being racist against they would change their vote and perception of him. Do you think he will do that though? Then there's the trust issue as well.

What about sharing some blame with the media who repeatedly reports slanted views?

I'm surprised the percentage is that high. I think the more important number out of that poll is that 18% of Republicans feel President Trump can't be trusted. That's way over the line from thinking he's dishonest or a liar... he can't be trusted. 18% of his own party. Those cowards need to man-up and voice that feeling.

What does the media have to do with this poll?

Forty-four percent of white respondents said yes they thought the president was a racist when they were asked by the pollster, "Do you think President Trump is racist, or don't you think so?" Fifty-two percent of white respondents thought the former reality-TV star wasn't racist. Seventy-nine percent of black respondents thought Trump is racist as did 58 percent of Hispanic respondents, according to Quinnipiac University.


44 Percent of White Americans Think Donald Trump Is Racist, New Poll Finds

Even more interesting, a large majority (55 percent to 39 percent) think Trump has emboldened other people to voice racist views. Even 22 percent of Republicans acknowledge that. Women, those with college degrees, younger voters and African Americans say Trump has emboldened racists to speak out in greater numbers than voters without college degrees, older voters and whites. In short, even if Americans do not admit Trump is a racist, they are willing to concede he’s popularized racist language. When it comes to handling race relations or uniting the country, a substantial majority (58 percent disapprove, 36 percent approve for both) disapprove of his performance.

Kind of funny to see the Dear Leader supporters here turn a blind eye to the people who actually do face racism in the country. Minorities. Seems like what they think - doesn't matter much to them.
