Poll: Nearly 60 Percent Think Trump Mishandling Race Relations

Poll: Nearly 60 Percent Think Trump Mishandling Race Relations

By    |   Friday, 23 November 2018 09:59 AM EST

President Donald Trump received poor marks on his handling of race relations in the latest Quinnipiac University National Poll released earlier this week.

The poll, which is one of the first widespread surveys taken after the midterm elections, voters are generally unfavorable on Trump, but his performance on race relations has been a particular source of dissatisfaction for Americans. Out of just over 1,000 surveyed, 59 percent said they had a negative view of Trump’s handling of race relations, compared to 35 percent who said they had a positive view. Voters are firmly split along party lines; 76 percent of Republicans approve while 93 percent of Democrats disapprove.

The Washington Post’s Eugene Scott notes that two of Quinnipiac’s other polls from this year have also shown Trump receiving poor grades on race relations, with 58 percent of voters disapproving of his actions in July and 61 percent in June. Scott also writes that Trump gave frequent “jabs” at Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, who is black, and said that Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who is also black, was unqualified, and has defended Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss., in her race-related controversies in her runoff election.

Trump “asked black and Latino voters what they had to lose by voting for him in 2016,” Scott concludes. “So far, based on how Americans view the president’s ability to address the most pressing racial issues of our time, the answer seems to be ‘a lot.’”
