A new poll shows American voters are experiencing great dissatisfaction with the state of the country—and Donald Trump supporters are even more upset than everyone else.
The Quinnipiac University survey released this week found that some 57% of Americans either strongly or somewhat agree with the statement “America has lost its identity.” While 79% of all Republicans replied to that effect, fully 85% of Trump supporters did. Similar figures were reflected in response to the statement “I’m falling further and further behind economically,” with 57% of all Americans saying they strongly or somewhat agreed, compared with 67% of all Republicans and 78% of Trump supporters.
Republicans in general and Trump supporters in particular were also more likely to agree that their “beliefs and values are under attack,” “the government has gone too far in assisting minority groups” and “public officials don’t care much what people like me think.”
The poll surveyed 1,451 voters from March 16 to 21 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
