Gallup Poll: Fewer Voters Think Trump Will Deliver On His Campaign Promises
19 April 2017, 01:56 | Clarence Schmidt
The number of Americans who think President Trump keeps his promises is plummeting
The poll found that only 45 percent of Americans believe Trump keeps his promises, down from 62 percent when Gallup asked the question in February.
In the two months since, however, Trump appeared to walk away from repealing the Affordable Care Act after Republicans failed to agree on the healthcare replacement bill that Trump stood behind.
On two other measures, whether Trump "cares about the needs of people like you" and "can manage the government effectively", the president's numbers also fell, although Gallup noted those declines were not statistically significant.
However, in terms of strong feelings for the President, 39 percent "strongly disapprove" of Mr. Trump's job performance, versus only 30 percent who "strongly approve". And many of Trump's policy reversals, as well as his April 7 missile strike on Syria, occurred either during or after the poll was conducted, which makes the impact on Americans' opinion of those recent decisions unclear.
Forty-five percent of Americans still see Trump as someone who keeps his promises, although 52% said that label does not apply.
