Americans overwhelmingly agree that Britain's vote to leave the European Union reflects  anger and dissatisfaction across the globe — including in the United States, a new poll shows.

The USA Today/Suffolk University survey released Thursday finds 68 percent of voters think the Brexit vote reflects global trends; 16 percent think it's an isolated referendum, and 16 percent were either undecided or had no answer.

The survey's margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

"I think it is an indication of a broader feeling among people around the world, where they are feeling more and more helpless about controlling things in their own countries," Sandra Lueder of Cheshire, Conn., who supports GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump, tells the USA Today.

"I do happen to believe the refugee crisis and immigration were important components of things that people were unhappy about."

Stephanie Weber of Gravel Switch, Ky., who supports Democrat Hillary Clinton, tells the newspaper the vote "shows that there are people that are definitely not coming up with others, people that feel like they are being left behind."

"I know that the similarity, the anger at government in general is similar" to that in the United States, she adds.

In other findings, the poll shows:
  • The consensus that the Brexit vote reflects global trends also crosses party lines, with 75 percent of  Republicans, 72 percent of independents and 59 percent of Democrats agreeing.
  • Clinton backers, by 26 percent-13 percent, predict the Brexit outcome will hurt Trump; 40 percent don’t see an effect on the U.S. election.
  • Among Trump supporters, 37 percent see the vote as a benefit to Trump, while just 5 percent think it will hurt him. Thirty-four percent say it won’t make a difference one way or the other.
