  • Donald Trump

New polls from Fox News, NBC News/SurveyMonkey, and Pew Research Center - allconducted after the president spoke out about Charlottesville - foundthat most Americans broadly disapprove of Trump'sconduct or are dissatisfied with his performancein the past few weeks.

A new Fox News poll has revealed a high level of discontent with US President Donald Trump. "He's let me down", said one Trump voter during the focus group, per Politico. Only 11% of them say they have no concerns about what he's doing, while another 16% say obstruction from other people concerns them.

Among voters who Strongly Approve of the job the president is doing, 79% feel his criticism of Republican senators is good for the country.

Each of the participants also anxious about what they called an erosion of civility in America, urging dialogue and cooperation and calling for unity as a country in spite of their disappointment in Trump's rhetoric.

Even among Republicans, researchers found less than one in three voters, or just 31 percent, said they agree with the president on most all fronts.

Most Republicans also say most GOP members of Congress have lost touch with their party's voters from throughout the nation.

Though 69% of people who leaned Republican said they agree with Trump on many or all issues facing the USA, 46% said they have mixed feelings about Trump's conduct.

First, Trump lately has been touting the robust health of American business.

Most Republican voters don't care much these days for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, making him now the most unpopular of the top congressional leaders.

Trump's approval rating in the Fox News poll is his worst to date. Among those who disapprove of Trump, 15% of those completing the survey on or after August 13 cite concerns about Trump's approach to race, up from 3% who mention these concerns in the days before.

Breaking the numbers down:19 percent of Republicans said they don't like his conduct, 46 reported "mixed" feelings about Trump's behavior, and just 34 percent said they do like his conduct. Even Orrin Hatch - a man with all the aggressiveness of a Keebler elf - has chastised Trump a time or two.

The Fox News poll, released Wednesday, shows that 90 percent of Americans would use the phrase "says what he thinks" to describe Trump, while 81 percent says this trait describes Trump "extremely" or "very" well. However, about half of Americans (51%) view him as intelligent.

Partisans divided on Trump's handling of Russian Federation. Words like "strong" and "reliable" came to mind, although one Democratic voter quipped that Kelly's White House job description amounts to a "babysitter".

Pollsters also found that 52 percent of all those surveyed agreed that the president is "not tough enough" in his dealings with Russian Federation.

Exhausted or not, though, they cannot break free from the deeply cynical strategy of ignoring what a disaster Trump is for supposed Republican principles like limited government, adherence to the Constitution and defense of the rule of law for as long as they think they can get some of their regressive agenda passed. But there is a stark partisan divide: 74% of Democrats say Trump is not tough enough, compared with just 26% of Republicans.
