Poll: Fewer see Trump as trust­wor­thy

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Sally Per­sons

A new Gallup poll shows a mas­sive drop among those who be­lieve Pres­i­dent Trump will keep his prom­ises.

The poll shows a 17-point drop on this ques­tion since Fe­bru­ary, go­ing from 62 per­cent to 45 per­cent among those who be­lieve the pres­i­dent will fol­low through on his agenda.

Al­though Mr. Trump saw the big­gest drop here among Democrats, go­ing from 37 per­cent to 16 per­cent, the pres­i­dent saw a large drop among Repub­li­cans and in­de­pen­dents as well. Among Repub­li­cans, Mr. Trump dropped 11 points, go­ing from 92 per­cent to 81 per­cent on this ques­tion, and 16 points among in­de­pen­dents, go­ing from 59 per­cent to 43 per­cent.

The one char­ac­ter ques­tion Mr. Trump held the ma­jor­ity on is whether he is a strong and de­ci­sive leader. Fifty-two per­cent be­lieve Mr. Trump is still a strong leader, though that is still a 7-point drop from Fe­bru­ary’s 59 per­cent.
