The Majority of Americans No Longer Believe Trump Keeps His Promises

President Donald Trump's image among Americans as someone who keeps his promises has faded in the first two months of his presidency, falling from 62% in February to 45%.

Only 36% of respondents said they felt Trump was "honest and trustworthy", the latest poll, taken April 5-9 among 1,019 adults, showed.

However, Trump saw a drop across the board in people who believe he keeps his promises.

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.

Can bring about changes this country needs - 46 percent in April vs. 53 percent in February.

An Economist/YouGov poll found that just 50 or 51 percent of US adults said Trump was either a "very strong" or "somewhat strong" leader in a question about leadership qualities, dramatically down from the 61 percent he polled at soon after his inauguration.

Russia-US relations at an 'all-time low' following Syria strike
It was an ominous start to Tillerson's visit. "The world's two foremost nuclear powers can not have this kind of relationship". But he said Moscow and Washington had agreed to continue co-operating to try to find a political solution for Syria .

"Reality has intruded and it's clear he's finding it more hard to do a lot of the things he promised", said Frank Newport, editor-in-chief of the Gallup Poll. Among various age groups, confidence in Trump is highest - 52 percent - among those 55 and older and lowest - 34 percent - among those 18-34 years old.

A majority of Americans in a new poll says that corporations and upper-income individuals do not pay enough taxes.

Trump's approval rating, even after he took military action against Syria, hovers around 40 percent.

Most Americans have viewed Trump unfavourably since before his inauguration and continue to do so almost 90 days into his term in office.

President Donald Trump's setbacks on campaign promises like repealing the Affordable Care Act and his shifting positions on other stances look like they're catching up with him - bigly.

Trump's approval rating has largely been pretty dismal during the first months of his presidency, a time when presidents typically enjoy a popular, post-election grace period.
