Most Americans no longer think Trump is keeping his promises, poll says

Trump Approval Rating Sees Modest Rise After Military Strikes Does Trump keep his promises? Poll finds big shift in opinion
Howard Terry | 18 April, 2017, 01:25

Only 36 percent of respondents view the president as honest and trustworthy in the recent poll while 41 percent think he can manage the government effectively.

The view that Trump is a "strong and decisive leader" also fell, from 59 to 52 percent, and the expectation that he can deliver the "changes this country needs" dipped to 46 percent from 53 percent.

In February, Gallup's polling suggested 65 percent of Americans believed that Trump has kept his promises, but that has eroded to just 45 percent in April. The sharp decline, Gallup suggests, is due largely to Trump's apparent abandonment of his campaign promises including his pledge to repeal the the Affordable Care Act.

The new survey was conducted from April 5 to 9 among 1,019 adults. That string of changes followed others he has made, on issues such as Medicaid spending and H-1B visas. That's down from 42 percent in February, a 6 percent drop. He has been silent on what the other polls have reported. At least one poll has his approval rating on the rise, with the leader of the free world passing an important benchmark for support.

More men (51 percent) than women (40 percent) said he keeps his promises.

While Trump's poll numbers appear to continue their downward trajectory ever since he was sworn into office, the media-critiquing president might find solace in an Emerson University poll that found he was still more trustworthy than the media. And in its writeup of the latest results, Gallup notes that's also possible for how people perceive his ability to stick to his word.

As Gallup noted, "Trump has lost significant ground with a public that only two months ago credited him with having one of the key characteristics of a successful president".
