The majority of American voters think President Donald Trump is reckless, sexist, and thin-skinned, according to a new Morning Consult/Politico poll.
Asked for their opinion on whether a list of both positive and negative descriptors applied to the president, 59% of those polled said the president is reckless, 55% said he is sexist, and 53% said he is thin-skinned, while just 34% described him as trustworthy, 35% called him honest, and 35% said he was steady.
The survey was conducted during the two days following the president’s June 29th tweets crudely attacking MSNBC hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.
Sixty-five per cent of voters — and 46% of Republicans — said the president’s comments about Brzezinski, whom he called “crazy” and claimed was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” when he saw her earlier this year, were unacceptable.
A plurality of voters — 38% — said Trump’s attacks on Brzezinski gave them a “much less favourable” view of the president.
The survey of 1,989 registered voters was conducted between June 29 and 30 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. Thirty-nine per cent of those surveyed voted for Trump in November, while 37% voted for Hillary Clinton.
