Majority of Americans say President Donald Trump is a Man of his Word
Results of a recent Gallup Poll reveals that 62% of Americans polled said President Trump keeps his promises, 42% believe he is honest, with Republicans much more positive than Democrats.
59% said President Trump, only 3 weeks into his term, is a strong and decisive leader, with 53% polled saying he can bring about the changes this country needs.
Donald Trump made several promises during the campaign, but the biggest ones include building a wall along the Mexican-US border and temporarily banning Muslims from entering the country.
The Wall, Mr. Trump said, would be paid for by Mexico, but Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto retorted that would not happen.
President Trump’s travel ban, meanwhile, was put in place in late January but was temporarily overturned by a judge in Washington State.
In the same poll, only 4% of Democrats say they approve of the job President Trump is doing while 81% of Republicans say he inspires confidence and is honest and trustworthy.
More Democrats now believe President Trump can bring about change, that number has increased from 9 to 20% since September.
The poll was conducted 1-5 February with a random sample of 1,035 adults.
