The Quinnipiac poll was conducted after the rally in Charlottesville, where white nationalists clashed with counter-protesters, resulting in three deaths and at least 34 injuries.

According to the poll, voters trust the media more than Trump 54 - 36 percent "to tell you the truth about important issues". I hit them with everything.

There is too much prejudice in the nation today, 55 percent of American voters say, while 40 percent say there is too much political correctness, the widest margin for prejudice since the question first was asked in June 2016.

Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said the events in Charlottesville, and Trump's comments about them, have fueled a perception in America that racial tensions are on the rise. The president's overall approval rating stands at 43 per cent، slightly higher than measurements in most other surveys.

Since Trump's election, "the level of hatred and prejudice in the USA has increased", 65 percent of voters say, while 2 percent say it has decreased and 32 percent say it hasn't changed.

The Quinnipiac Poll reported that 39 percent of voters supported removing Confederate statues, compared to 50 percent who said they disagreed. Eighty-one percent responded that prejudice against minority groups is either "very serious" or "somewhat serious", and 62% said the same of prejudice toward Jews.

Sixty-eight percent of registered voters said Trump's actions and rhetoric "could get us accidentally involved in an worldwide conflict", while 29 percent disagreed with that statement, the poll found.

Just more than a third of American voters (35%) say Trump hasn't had an impact on white supremacist groups, and six in 10 voters (59%) say he's encouraged them. Twenty-nine percent, however, disagreed with this statement.

The poll surveyed 1،009 registered voters nationwide between August 13 and August 17.
