Disapproval of Trump’s handling of race relations hits 60 percent

One of the first polls published after the midterm elections gives President Trump low marks in an area where he has been viewed negatively since the days before he occupied the Oval Office: race relations.

Nearly 60 percent of Americans disapprove of the way Trump is handling race relations, according to the most recent Quinnipiac University poll. The only group that gives him high marks are Republicans, with 76 percent. White men are the next highest, with half approving of Trump’s handling of race relations.

Democrats as a whole disapprove the most — 93 percent — of how the president is handling race relations. Black Americans are a close second, with 91 percent disapproving.
