A majority of Americans believe it is "too early to tell" if the meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was a success, according to the results of a Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Fifty-five percent of Americans said it is "too early to tell" if the summit was a success for the U.S., while 56 percent said the same for North Korea.

Meanwhile, 21 percent of Americans called the meeting a success for the U.S. and 29 percent said it was a success for North Korea.

The poll found a significant partisan divide on the issue, as 49 percent of Republicans called the summit a success for the U.S. compared to just 5 percent of Democrats.

The survey also showed that Americans are not optimistic that the meeting between Trump and Kim will lead North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons.

Fifty-three percent of Americans said it is "unlikely" that North Korea will give up its nuclear weapons, while 41 percent said it is "likely."

At the same time, 42 percent said the summit made the long-term chance of a war with North Korea "less likely" compared to 39 percent that said it made "no difference."

The Washington Post-ABC News survey of 495 adults was conducted June 13th through 15th and has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.5 percentage points.
