A majority of people in the U.S.no longer believe that President Trump keeps his promises, according to a Gallup survey released Monday. That sentiment has dropped especially among women.
The decline came across the political spectrum, although it was more stark with Democrats (37 percent down to 16 percent) and Independents (59 percent down to 43 percent), who respectively had 21- and 16-point declines in whether they believe Trump keeps his promises. Even among Republicans, the numbers fell, from 92 per cent to 81 per cent. The percentage who think he is a "strong and decisive leader" also took a big hit, falling from 59 percent to 52 percent. The percentage of people who say Trump is "honest and trustworthy" has dropped by 6 points. Fifty-two percent held this view, down 7 percent from February.
A 17-point tumble in people who think Trump "keeps his promises", from 62 percent to 45 percent (or almost two-thirds to less than half).

Bush's performance, and a mere 19 percent disapproved of Ronald Reagan at this point in his second week in April. He has been silent on what the other polls have reported.
