Less Than Half Of Americans Believe Trump Keeps His Promises

In February, Gallup found that 65% of women believed Donald Trump keeps his promises.

According to Gallup, most Americans no longer believes Donald Trump keeps his promises.

But after almost three months in office, during which Trump has dialed back or reversed several high-profile campaign promises amid a bruising battle with Republicans in Congress over an effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, those numbers are falling. In February, 59 percent said they thought Mr. Trump is a strong and decisive leader, but that has dropped to 52 percent who think so.

The survey also found decreasing beliefs among those polled that the president cares about average people and can manage the government effectively.

There is evidence, however, that the Rasmussen result may have been an outlier, as President Trump had lower job approval ratings in other recent polls.




While 39 percent is still abysmally low, President Trump will no doubt see the correlation and do what he can to keep that number climbing. Only 30 percent disapproved of George W. Bush's performance, and a mere 19 percent disapproved of Ronald Reagan at this point in his second week in April.

"Supporters have expressed unhappiness that more has not been done on taxes and immigration, in addition to healthcare", Norman said.

The results represent a significant turnaround from February, when 62% said they saw Trump as someone who keeps his promises.

The polling did, however, come amid Trump's decision to strike Syria militarily, which he authorized on April 6, shifting the stance he took in multiple tweets from 2013 and 2014 opposing such action in Syria. Being a strong and decisive leader is the only characteristic that a majority still say applies to Trump.
