Around '22 million Americans AGREE with Neo-Nazi views', shocking new poll finds


The poll was conducted following the recent violence in Charlottesville at the “Unite the Right” rally between far-right and left-wing activists.

Trump was heavily criticised for taking two days to condemn the violence and then for a press conference at Trump Tower where he said there were “good people on both sides” of the protest.

A recent survey conducted by the Washington Post and ABC finds that while the majority of people think it’s unacceptable to hold white supremacist views, nine per cent say such views are acceptable – which is the equivalent to 22 million Americans.

A similar number support the alt-right movement and 50 per cent oppose it.

There is a similar amount of support for the alt-right among Democrats and Republicans.

President Trump’s overall approval rating is the lowest on record for a president at six months.

After Trump’s remarks following the protests, 42 per cent think he is putting white supremacists on equal standing with counter-protestors.

Thirty-five per cent say Trump does not equate the two while 23 per cent offer no opinion.

The president’s approval rating at 37 per cent is little changed from a previous survey in July where he had 36 percent.

This is lower than the rating for his recent predecessors in the White House this early in their presidency.

Trump still has an 80 per cent approval rating among Republicans, but the percentage that approves “strongly” is down 10 per cent from last month.

The poll was conducted by landline and mobile telephone from August 16 – 20, 2017 in English and Spanish.

A random national sample of 1,014 adults was selected and results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points.
