The USA has a feel of a third world country, since Donald Trump was selected President.


Quote:
A majority of Americans think civility has gotten worse since President Trump was elected, according to a new survey.


A PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist Poll found that 70 percent of Americans think civility has gotten worse since Trump's election.


Just 6 percent of Americans think civility has gotten better since Trump's election and 20 percent think it has stayed the same.


The poll also found that Americans trust the intelligence community and the courts the most and Congress and the media the least.


Sixty-one percent of respondents say they do not put much trust in the Trump administration.
That percentage is largely split among partisan lines, with 90 percent of Democrats saying they don't trust the Trump administration and 84 percent of Republicans saying the opposite.

Poll: 70 percent say civility has dropped since Trump

Well, he’s not civil, so why should anyone else be?

It's definitely a new low.

You mean the hateful, angry rhetoric from the Left, including calls for disobedience, unrest, and even assassination is civil?

According to the OP article, "Americans broadly believe their country’s political tone has become less civil since Donald Trump was elected president....".

I agree. The political tone has become outrageously uncivil due to the Left's unwillingness to accept the voters' choice of President.

The pollsters didn't ask participants a follow up question regarding who Americans believe is responsible for the "less civil" political environment? If they had asked me, the lack of civility lies with Leftists' protesting, biased media reporting, and violence.
