A vast majority of Americans say President Donald Trump's fiery rhetoric aimed at North Korea is not helpful, a Fox News poll showed.

The survey, released Wednesday, found 70 percent of respondents say the way Trump talks about North Korea is not helpful; only 23 percent think it helps.

Even among Republicans the rhetoric is not popular, the survey showed; 75 percent of GOP voters approve of the president's handling of North Korea, but only 45 percent say the way he talks about Pyongyang is helpful – 46 percent say it is not.

"There is uneasiness among Americans about Trump’s ability to keep them safe," Democratic pollster Chris Anderson, who conducts the Fox News poll along with Republican Daron Shaw, told Fox News.

"His saber rattling looks to be testing the patience of even some core supporters."

In other findings:

  • Americans in about equal numbers feel Trump is being "too tough" on North Korea, at 22 percent, and "not tough enough," at 19 percent. Forty-six percent think he is handling things "about right."
  • 61 percent say diplomacy and sanctions are the best way to stop North Korea from continuing its nuclear program; 27 percent think threats of U.S. force are the best strategy.
  • 39 percent approve of Trump's performance on North Korea; 55 percent disapprove. The disapproval rate on that question is up from 50 percent in August and 45 percent in July, Fox News reported.
