AP Poll: 69% of Americans Have Unfavorable View of Donald Trump

A new AP-GfK poll shows that nearly seven out of 10 Americans have an unfavorable opinion of current Republican front-runner Donald Trump. This number includes roughly half of Republican voters who were surveyed.

Seven in 10 people, including close to half of Republican voters, have an unfavorable view of Trump, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. It's an opinion shared by majorities of men and women; young and old; conservatives, moderates and liberals; and whites, Hispanics and blacks — a devastatingly broad indictment of the billionaire businessman.

Even in the South, a region where Trump has won GOP primaries decisively, close to 70 percent view him unfavorably. And among whites without a college education, one of Trump's most loyal voting blocs, 55 percent have a negative opinion.

It's almost impressive how Trump has managed to make one of the most partisan and divided populations in a long time come together united on an issue.

Trump, despite being the overall leader in terms of delegates, still has not yet cracked the 50 percent threshold in a state, although he came very close to doing this in Massachusetts.
