Nearly seven in 10 voters think President Donald Trump's behavior could accidentally embroil the U.S. in an "international conflict," according to the latest George Washington University battleground poll.

Further, the poll finds Trump's approval rating at 41 percent.

The results:

  • Sixty-eight percent of voters think Trump's words/actions could cause an "international conflict," while 29 percent disagree.
  • Seventy-one percent say his behavior is not what they expect from a president, while 27 percent disagree.

However, 50 percent approve of Trump's handling of the economy, and 52 percent said Trump has been keeping his campaign promises.

"The Battleground Poll data show that more Americans object to President Trump's character than his agenda," said GW Associate Professor of Political Management Michael Cornfield. "If there is anything approaching a consensus in today's sharply divided America, it's that Trump speaks and behaves inappropriately given the office he holds."

The poll surveyed 1,009 registered voters nationwide Aug. 13-17 and included a protocol for reaching mobile phone users. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
