Poll Finds 80% Of Americans Think Country Is 'Out Of Control'
An NBC/WSJ poll shows ex-VP Biden leading President Trump 49 percent to 42 percent.
After months of a pandemic, a gasping economy, and racial protests entering their third week — 80% of Americans say in a new poll that the U.S. is "generally out of control."
The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday found differences depending on political party. Still, 92% of Democrats and 66% of Republicans think the country is out of control. Of those who identify as independents, 78% said the current situation has gone haywire.
Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies said the survey was remarkable in that President Trump's job rating hasn't changed over the last 90 days.
Democrat Joe Biden leads President Trump 49 percent to 42 percent among registered voters. That's unchanged from April despite the extraordinary events lashing the country.
The president on Sunday did lose the vote and influence of one prominent Republican figure who served in the administrations of both presidents Bush and President Reagan.
Powell said, "He lies, he lies about things, and he gets away with it because people will not hold him accountable. And so while we're watching him, we need to watch our Congress. I couldn't vote for him in '96 and I certainly cannot, in any way, support President Trump this year."
Appearing on CNN, former Secretary of State Colin Powell said he would be voting for Biden.
President Trump responded on Twitter, calling Powell "a real stiff" and criticized him for supporting the invasion of Iraq.
Trump also faced criticism Sunday for retweeting a conservative talk show post which attacked the character of George Floyd — the man whose death in Minneapolis police custody sparked international protests.
"I believe you're going to be hearing from the president this week on this topic in some detail. And I would ask you maybe to reserve judgment until after that time," Carson said.
Carson also downplayed systemic racism in law enforcement, saying there are definitely "racists around" but he "grew up at a time when there was real systemic racism."
