Harry Enten at CNN:
A Quinnipiac University poll out this week shows that a majority (51%) of voters believe that President Donald Trump is a racist. Forty-five percent say that he is not.
To opponents of the President, this poll may not be surprising. But think about it for a second. This isn't just the normal opposition you'd expect to a president. This is a majority of voters saying their president is a racist.
Compare these numbers to a Harris poll from September 1968. Former Alabama Gov. George Wallace, a segregationist, was running for president as an opponent to the Civil Rights movement. As he campaigned, 41% agreed when asked whether Wallace was a racist. That was basically even with the 40% who disagreed with the statement.
To be clear, Trump is insulting a black anchor as "the dumbest man on television" while quoting himself as part of his case that he's not racist https://t.co/w2nDEEhkJQ— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) July 31, 2019
