Voters are worried President Trump will inadvertently draw the United States into an "international conflict."
A new George Washington University Battleground poll of 1,000 registered voters found 66 percent of respondents fear Trump's "words or actions" could result in a new conflict overseas and among them, 51 percent felt strongly about that fear, while 30 percent disagreed.
Among voters, 70 percent said Trump's behavior is "not what [they] expected from a president," while 54 percent said Trump is doing "too much" for the wealthy and big corporations and not enough "for our families."
The poll included some encouraging numbers for Trump: 51 percent of voters said they believe the president is keeping his campaign promises while 52 percent believe Trump is trying to make "major reforms," and has been stymied by "Washington elites," who have failed to pass his agenda.
The poll found that voters blamed Congress for failing to pass a healthcare reform bill this year and they divided the blame up nearly equally between Republicans (33 percent) and Democrats (29 percent). Just 17 percent blamed Trump, who has publicly blamed Congress for blocking the health care bill and his agenda generally.
Overall the poll showed Trump with a 42 percent approval rating and a 53 percent disapproval rating. Among those, 48 percent registered strong disapproval for the president's performance.
The survey found if the 2018 election were held now, 34 percent would vote for Republicans while 40 percent would pick Democrats.
The poll found 64 percent of voters think the country is headed in the wrong direction, and just 28 percent believe it is on the right track.
The poll was conducted Aug. 13 to 17 and had about a 3 percent margin of error.
