Devastating new poll: Majority of Americans now say Trump can't keep promises

Trump Approval Rating Sees Modest Rise After Military Strikes

Trump Approval Rating Sees Modest Rise After Military Strikes

It's the first time that Trump's approval rating has been at 50 percent in nearly a month, according to Rasmussen Reports.

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).

Anti-Trump protesters beat apparent Trump supporter
The events were unrelated to 150 marches planned across the country on Saturday that called on Trump to release his tax returns. Similar protests are being held in dozens more cities including Washington, D.C., Chicago, New York and Palm Beach, Florida.

Data-focused website FiveThirtyEight tracks Trump's approval by aggregating and weighting polls.

"Supporters have expressed unhappiness that more has not been done on taxes and immigration, in addition to healthcare", Norman said. And his first 100 days in office seemed to have only made matters worse.

That attribute - a leadership style that's "strong and decisive" - was said to be extremely important to voters in at least one poll after the last election. 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. He has been silent on what the other polls have reported.
