More voters thought President Donald Trump's inaugural address is more likely to drive Americans further apart (38 percent) than it is to bring them together (36 percent), according to a Rasmussen Reports survey released Monday.

Twenty-one percent said the speech would have no impact.

Other results from the poll include:

  • Opinions about the inaugural address went according to party lines, but among the unaffiliated, 36 percent said the speech was more likely to divide while only 29 percent said it was more likely to bring Americans together.
  • When asked to rate the president's first day in office, just as many voters (34 percent) said he did poorly as said he did excellent (also 34 percent).
  • 15 percent said he did fair, while another 15 percent rated his performance as good.
  • The results were also predictably split among party lines, but among the unaffiliated, 31 percent thought he did poorly and 28 percent said excellent.
  • 89 percent of voters followed Trump's inauguration and first day in office, with 56 percent of them following it very closely.
  • Only 3 percent did not follow it at all.

The national telephone survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted Jan. 22. The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
