A majority of U.S. voters say President Trump has emboldened racists to express their beliefs openly, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

Fifty-five percent of voters said Trump has made it easier for those with racist beliefs to share those views publicly. Thirty-nine percent disagreed.

The Quinnipiac poll took the country's pulse on issues such as civility, immigration and President Trump's character.

Many Trump critics have attributed the rise in white nationalist voices in public to Trump's rhetoric on immigration.

The NAACP last week blamed the rising number of hate crimes in the U.S. to Trump's language and policies.

"From campaign to election, this president has spewed the language of division and hate and it has manifested in not only racist policies, but in racists acts against people of color and other groups," Derrick Johnson, president and CEO of the NAACP, said in the statement.

Hate crimes against black, Hispanic, Jewish and gay Americans have risen for the fourth year in a row, according to a study released last week by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism.

Trump has denied accusations that he is racist, saying he is "the least racist person."
