Poll: Majority of young adults view Trump as 'illegitimate' president

Jermaine Anderson keeps going back to the same memory of Donald Trump, then a candidate for president of the U.S., referring to some Mexican immigrants as rapists and murderers.

Most young blacks and large majorities of Latinos and Asian-Americans say they consider Trump's presidency illegitimate, as do 47 percent of young whites.

The poll found that 57% of Americans between ages 18 and 30 believe that Trump's presidency is illegitimate.

The Media Insight Project poll on sharing news on social media was conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and the American Press Institute Nov. 9-Dec.

A majority of young adults view President Trump as an "illegitimate president", according to a new poll.

It marked the first time Israel had used the Arrow missile, which has been jointly developed with the US over years to defend against long-range missiles from Iran.

The poll also found that young adults across all races and ethnicities disapprove of Trump's performance as president and believe that the country is on the "wrong track".

The Democratic Party performs better, but views are not overwhelmingly positive.

The survey includes interviews with 516 African-Americans, 504 Latinos, 277 Asian-Americans and 505 non-Hispanic whites, along with 31 young people of other racial and ethnic backgrounds.

The poll further indicated that eight in 10 young people believe the USA president is doing poorly in terms of the policies he has put forward while seven in 10 have negative views of Trump's presidential demeanor.

The survey of 1,833 Americans age 18-30, conducted between February 16 and March 6, has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.
