Gallup: 62% of Americans Say Trump Keeps His Promises

Gallup: 62% of Americans Say Trump Keeps His Promises

President Trump

According to a recent Gallup poll from February 1-5, 2017, 62% of Americans say that Trump keeps the promises that he's made.  59% believe Trump is a strong and decisive leader.  53% also believe he can make the kind of changes that need to be made.  However, only 44% believes that Trump inspires confidence in the American people.  The characteristics that the American people apply to Trump are reflected in his inaugural address a few weeks ago as well as actions he's taken since becoming president. 

Consequently, many Americans don't view his honesty in a very positive light, echoing the presidential campaign last year between him and his rival Hillary Clinton.  There's a major gap in opinion amongst the Democrats and Republicans concerning Trump's honesty.  91% of Republican voters believe Trump keeps his promises whereas 36% of Democratic voters believe so.  While 94% of Republicans believe Trump is a strong and decisive leader, only 29% of Democrats believe so.  Concerning Trump's honesty only 81% of Republicans believe he is.  9% of Democrats say Trump is trustworthy.  Click on the above link to read the story.
