Half Of Americans Think Donald Trump Is A Racist
Is Donald Trump a racist? About half of Americans think so. About 49% say they believe he is a racist, while 47% say he is not. Men say he's not by a 16 point margin, while women say he is by a 17 point margin. Whites say he's not by a 14 point margin, and nonwhites say he is racist by much larger margins (77 points for Blacks and 36 points for Hispanics).
But racist or not, a significant majority (55%) say he has emboldened those who have racist views to express those views openly. And a larger 58% majority say he is doing more to divide the country than to unite it.
These charts reflect the results of a new Quinnipiac University Poll -- done between June 27th and July 1st of a national sample of 1,020 voters, with a 3.7 point margin of error.
