While many in the news media, in Washington, across social media, and in the streets have swiftly condemned President Donald Trump for his comments asserting that both the white supremacists who gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia and the counter-protesters who demonstrated against the so-called "Unite the Right" rally were to blame for the ensuing violence, a new poll shows that many Republicans agree with him.

Just 38 percent of Americans report a favorable view of Trump, while 56 percent of the public express an unfavorable opinion of him, according to the poll.

While most Democrats and Independents disagreed, 87 percent of Republicans backed the statement.

His remarks on how "both sides" were to be blamed for the violence over the August 12 weekend have since prompted widespread criticism by Democrats and Republicans alike. The numbers also included responses of those who were polled before Charlottesville attacks.

The survey results also stated that about half of Americans (48 percent) - say there is clear evidence that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election and supported Donald Trump, while 43 percent disagree.

An article of impeachment must get a majority vote in the House of Representatives before reaching the Senate. Other Democrats have called for Trump's impeachment, with Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tennessee), announcing Thursday that he planned to introduce more articles of impeachment in light of Trump's comments on Charlottesville.

Donald Trump is only six Senate votes from prosecution, as indicated by an investigator at an unmistakable free research organization. But the poll results suggest that as more GOP figures pivot away from the president's rhetoric, they're also distancing themselves from a loyal Trump base which is reluctant to criticize even his most contentious viewpoints.

Another 10 percent of respondents said they either didn't know or declined to answer.
