Poll shows civility down since Trump's election
-- The majority of Americans -- seven in 10 -- say the level of civility in Washington has declined since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds.
More than eight in 10 Democrats say the civility of discourse has gotten worse since Trump's election, and 65% of Republicans say civility between their party and the Democrats has declined during the same time period.
Seventy percent of independents share the same view.
Only 6% of Americans believe the overall tone has improved in Washington since Trump was elected, according to the poll, which was conducted before Trump's WWE tweet. Twenty percent of those polled said civility is the same as it was prior to Trump's election.
