Majority Of Americans Consider Charlottesville Event Act Of Terrorism

When it comes to the president's reaction to events, a majority of Americans polls disapproved but looking at Republicans alone the majority approved. Just 36% have a favorable assessment of Democrats in Congress.

Approximately two-thirds of Americans thought the vehicle attack that left one person dead and 19 others wounded was an act of domestic terrorism, and 52 percent found Donald Trump's response to the attack and protests, organized by neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups, to be unsatisfactory and not strong enough, according to the poll conducted by the PBS NewsHour, NPR and Marist Poll.

While most Democrats and Independents disagreed, 87 percent of Republicans backed the statement. Few people like Congress - it has just a 10% approval rating, while the President's approval rating in this week's poll is 39%. After the attacks, another daily Gallup poll on August 14 said his approval ratings in the poll stood at 34 percent.

The survey was conducted on 2,024 Americans between August 2-8, before the violent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Trump's initial controversial statement about it.

Trump disbands councils after business leaders flee
Trump himself has stayed out of sight, though he traveled from NY to his golf club in New Jersey for the night. Kevin Plank , the chief executive of Under Armour Inc.'s issued a more vague statement about his decision.

Trump has mostly maintained high approval numbers among Republicans during his presidency so far, though they have slipped slightly since Inauguration Day.

Trump's overall favorability rating in the poll stands at 38 percent favorable, 56 percent unfavorable. On July 12, Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman formally filed an article of impeachment against Trump in relation to his controversial dismissal of FBI Director James Comey.

On Saturday, when clashes between protesters and counter-protesters erupted, Trump condemned the violence but also blamed it on "many sides", PBS News reported. Other Democrats have called for Trump's impeachment, with Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tennessee), announcing Thursday that he planned to introduce more articles of impeachment in light of Trump's comments on Charlottesville. While Trump doesn't have the best relationship with his party at the moment, it's still hard to believe they would support a process that could see a member of their own party removed from office.

So who are the most hardcore groups of Trump backers? Seven in ten (70 percent) white evangelicals also said they did not see evidence of Russia's involvement in the election.
