Most Young Americans Think Trump Is Mentally Unfit To Be President, Poll Shows

The majority of young Americans do not think President Donald Trump is mentally fit to be serving as president, a poll released on Friday shows.

Six in 10 Americans age 15 to 34—all who will be of voting age by the 2020 presidential election—questioned Trump's mental fitness, while only 38 percent thought he is mentally fit to be in office, according to the poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and MTV.

However, the poll noted, "young whites tend to have a more favorable view of Trump than young people of color." Specifically, half of the young whites said Trump is mentally fit, compared with 31 percent of Hispanics and only 10 percent of blacks.

The inaugural MTV/AP-NORC Youth Political Pulse survey asked young people age 15-34 to assess the current state of American politics, President Trump’s job performance, and a number of public policy proposals.

Two-thirds of young Americans disapproved of the way Trump is handling his job. Sixty-six percent said Trump he is not "making America great again," as his campaign slogan promised, and 72 percent said the president does not reflect their own personal values.

Most young Americans are not fans of Trump's controversial tweets, with 49 percent saying they would tell him to delete his account if they were his social media adviser. Another 37 percent said they would advise Trump to "take it down a notch," and only 13 percent would tell him to "keep doing what you're doing!"

As with the mentally fit question, more young whites than those of color thought favorably of Trump in regards to whether he is racist. A whopping 85 percent of blacks and 71 percent of Hispanics said they think Trump is racist, compared to 54 percent of whites. The breakdown was similar to results from a recent poll including adults of all ages.

While the majority of youth were critical of Trump, most of them, 54 percent, also felt that he is not being treated fairly by the media.

The nationwide poll involving 1,027 young Americans—188 teenagers age 15 to 17 and 839 adults age 18 to 34—was conducted from February 22 to March 9 and had a margin of error of 4.2 percentage points.
