"Everyone is horrified by Trump’s response to Charlottesville, except the Republican base. The good news from a CBS News poll released today is that the president’s appalling response to the domestic terrorist attack in Charlottesville is deeply unpopular with the American public as a whole. The bad news is that among the subset of voters that Trump cares about most, his base in the Republican Party, he’s doing fine.
Overall, 55 percent of the population disapproves of how Trump handled Charlottesville, and only 33 percent approve. But among Republicans, these numbers are flipped, with only 22 percent disapproving and 67 percent approving. Among Democrats, the numbers are 82 percent disapproval and 10 percent approval. Among independents, it is 53 percent disapproval and 32 percent approval."
