Poll: President Trump not mentally stable, says 47% of Americans
ROANOKE, Va. – As President Donald Trump rounds out his first year in office, American voters are finding themselves divided on whether or not he is mentally stable.
According to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released Wednesday, 45 percent of voters say he is stable, while 47 percent say he is not.
Factors such as gender, race and political affiliations account for much of the divide.
For example, men say 53-40 percent that Trump is stable, while women say 53-39 percent that he is not.
White voters say 51-43 percent that he is stable, while black voters drastically disagree at 71-15 percent.
Republicans say 89-9 percent that he is stable, and Democrats counter that, saying 80-10 percent he is not stable. Independent voters are divided fairly equally, with 46 percent saying Trump is stable and 45 percent saying he is not.
Overall, American voters as a whole disapprove 57-38 percent of the job Trump is doing. Voters also say 64-31 percent that he is doing more to divide the nation than unite it.
Republicans and white voters without a college degree seem to be the only demographics who say that he is doing more to unite the nation; divided 70-24 percent and 48-46 percent respectively.
Another subject each group agrees on, besides Republicans and white voters without a college degree, is that the president does not respect people of color as much as he respects white people. Voters agree on this 59-38 percent. Voters also say 58-35 percent that his alleged comments regarding immigrants are racist.
When it comes to the economy, 48 percent of voters approve of the way Trump has handled things, and 46 percent disapprove. The consensus remains negative when it comes to other key issues, with a 36-60 percent on foreign policy, a 33-60 percent on health care, a 38-60 percent on immigration and a 42-51 percent on taxes.
