Only 45% of Americans think Trump keeps his promises, a 17-point drop from the 62% who thought so in a similar Gallup survey in February.
More U.S. citizens have lost faith in President Donald Trump's ability to keep his promises, a new survey finds. A Morning Consult/Politico exit poll from November showed that voters said being a strong leader was the most important characteristic they used when choosing a president, with 36 per cent saying it mattered most, compared with just 18 per cent who said the same in 2012.
Trump's successes include the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and executive order rollbacks of Obama-era regulations, but he has also had significant setbacks on his promised repeal of Obamacare and his proposed temporary immigration ban. People were less likely to answer that the president "can bring about the changes this country needs" and that he is "honest and trustworthy".
According to Gallup, Trump's approval rating dropped two percentage points from when the February poll was conducted to when the April poll was done, from 42 per cent to 40 per cent.
And while the overall approval ratings are ticking up, another Gallup poll shows Americans are still concerned about Trump. Including the most recent Rasmussen survey, it had Trump's approval at 41.5 percent and his disapproval at 51.7 percent.More news: Little India in Singapore: It's Srikanth vs Praneeth in final
Polls have been a matter of debate since Trump took office.
Eighty-one percent of Republicans say he keeps his promises but it was even higher in February at 92 percent.
A majority of Americans in a new poll says that corporations and upper-income individuals do not pay enough taxes.
This is especially true for members of groups that didn't overwhelmingly vote for Trump. Still, Americans' views of presidents can fluctuate, and Trump already won the 2016 election when most Americans viewed him unfavorably.
At the outset of his presidency, a majority of the public did give Trump credit, however, for keeping his promises and for being a president who could bring about needed changes.
