More than half of US voters say Donald Trump is a racist following his attacks on Elijah Cummings and the conditions in Baltimore, Maryland.
A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday shows 51 percent of registered voters the feeling that the president is a racist, while 45 percent say he is not.
The poll was held on July 25-28, the days during and immediately after Trump commented on Twitter and called Baltimore "disgusting" and "rodent affected," claiming that "humans" wouldn't want to live there.
Many Democrats, and even those within the GOP, claimed that these racist feelings were directed against Cummings, which is black, and the city that falls within its district, where the population is more than 60 percent black.
Half of Americans (51 percent) say Donald Trump is racist after an escalation of attacks on black legislator Elijah Cummings and Baltimore, Maryland, which falls in the district that he represents
Per race, 46 percent of white voters say that Trump is racist, no less than 80 percent of black respondents said he is racist and 55 percent of Spanish voters believe that the president is racist
Trump attacked Baltimore over the weekend and called it & # 39; disgusting & # 39; and & # 39; rodent infected & # 39; and claimed that no one would want to live there. Many claim that the attacks on the city – where the population is more than 60 percent black – were racially motivated
The president also hit the Oversight president because he has done nothing to help Baltimore improve, even though he has been a US representative for the 7th district since 1996.
White voters were just one of the findings of the general polls, with 46 percent saying he is racist and 50 percent saying otherwise.
Among the black voters who were questioned, 80 percent said Trump was racist, while 55 percent of Spanish voters said they felt the same way.
Although more than half of the 1,306 respondents think that Trump is actually a racist, 10 percent less believe that Trump's immigration policy is motivated by & # 39; racist beliefs & # 39 ;.
Forty-nine percent of voters say that Trump's policy on immigration and border protection is in fact motivated by a & # 39; sincere interest in controlling our borders & # 39 ;.
The Trump government has paid a lot of attention to securing the southern border and raising the requirements for applying for asylum and gaining legal access. Illegal immigration has also been hit hard.

Although 51 percent say Trump is racist, in the same poll, only 41 percent said they felt his border policies were motivated by & # 39; racist beliefs & # 39 ;.
Earlier this year, Trump declared a national emergency on the southern border, stating the influx into crime, sex trafficking, drug smuggling and illegal immigration before the humanitarian crisis.
He has also had to deal with heat due to the circumstances in which migrants are detained in facilities and centers on the border and the despair of entry that even caused death.
Last month, a father and his 23-month-old daughter drowned as they tried to cross the Rio Grande river to enter Texas illegally between entry checkpoints.
Fifty-one percent of the Tuesday poll respondents said the conditions in the centers are inhumane & # 39; and 68 percent say it's a & # 39; serious problem & # 39; is.
Claiming that Trump is "racist" also comes from democratic leadership, such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who threw the president for his comments about Cummings and his district.
"We all reject racist attacks on him and support his steadfast leadership," she tweeted.
The Trump government has crackdown on illegal immigration and asylum claims since its resignation, but 49 percent of voters say that Trump's policy on immigration is actually motivated by a & # 39; s genuine interest in controlling of our limits & # 39;
Trump also recently came under fire for his Twitter attacks on a group of four minority congress women. Many claim that these attacks tell them to go back & # 39; racist in their country of origin. From left to right: Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley
This claim against Trump also goes back to earlier this month, when he attacked a quartet of minority representatives who call themselves "the team."
He told first-year students, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, to go back & # 39; and to repair their countries of origin instead of telling America how it should lead its politics.
This was largely seen as containing racist sentiments, and the four legislators held a press conference condemning the comments, calling Trump a "xenophobe," and demanding that an investigation into accusations be started immediately.
Of the four congress women, only Omar was born outside the US. She spent her younger years in Somalia and fled to America when she was a young teenager. She became an American citizen when she was 17.
Ocasio-Cortez is of Puerto Rican descent, the parents of Tlaib are Palestinian and Pressley is African-American.
Although they want to be deposed, the Quinnipiac survey finds that 60 percent of voters still don't think the president should be deposed – even after the testimony of the previous Special Counsel Robert Mueller last week.
