NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — A new poll find that half of registered voters in America think President Donald Trump is racist but more than half do not support an impeachment.  

Quinnipiac University conducted a nationwide survey of U.S. voters to find out how the population feels about the president's recent comments targeting four freshmen Congresswomen of color and Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings.

What the poll found was that American voters 51 – 45 percent say Trump is a racist, according to polling analyst Mary Snow.

“What we’re really seeing is are some very wide gaps when you consider political party, gender and race,” she told WCBS 880. “Ninety-one percent of Republicans say ‘no the president is not racist,’ 86 percent of Democrats say he is.”

The poll found that 81 percent of black voters think Trump is racist while 11 percent say he is not and Hispanic voters agree 55 – 44 percent.

Voters also say 60 – 32 percent that Congress should not begin impeachment proceedings against Trump. The only two groups that strongly support impeachment proceedings are Democrats and black voters.

“Fifty-six percent of the American voters say they don't think the Mueller report cleared President Trump of any wrong doing which is pretty much in line with what we found before last week's hearing,” Snow adds.

However, she does note that many American are still concerned about foreign interference in the national elections.
