60-40 NATION:

Most Americans See Trump As a Racist Madman -- Some Just Like That in a President (Eric Levitz, 9/23/16, New York)

An Associated Press-GfK survey released Friday finds that a majority of Americans think Trump is at least somewhat racist, while 60 percent say he does not respect ordinary people, and nearly three-quarters say he is neither civil nor compassionate -- a sentiment endorsed by 40 percent of Trump's own supporters. Clinton earns kinder marks on all of those fronts, with 22 percent saying she's racist, 48 percent that she doesn't respect ordinary folks (and/or "deplorables"), and 58 percent that she isn't compassionate.

A new SurveyMonkey poll shows Americans taking an even darker view of the Republican nominee, with a majority of voters saying Trump would abuse the power of the presidency to punish his political opponents, allow the U.S. to default on its debt, inspire "race riots" in major cities, create a database to track Muslim Americans, and order air strikes against the families of terrorists.
