President Donald Trump’s actions and words have left many American voters in a state of fright, according to a George Washington University Battleground Poll released Thursday.
The poll found a majority of registered voters—71 percent—viewed Trump’s behavior as “not what I expect from a president,” and 68 percent feared Trump could “accidentally” entangle the nation in an “international conflict.”
The results come as Trump deals with the fallout from his responses to the August 12 melee in Charlottesville, Virginia, as well as from his strong words toward North Korea and its leader, Kim Jong Un.
The poll showed that Trump’s demeanor and tough talk are not what Americans expect from their commander-in-chief, and 53 percent disapproved of his efforts in attempting to curb North Korea’s nuclear and missile tests.
The results come after Trump threatened Kim earlier this month with “fire and fury” like the world has never seen, and the president even goaded the North’s authoritarian leader by wondering if he “has anything better to do with his life,” in a tweet July 4 following a missile test.
