Majority of Americans don't think Trump is keeping his promises

Majority of Americans don't think Trump is keeping his promises

According to Gallup, Trump's approval rating dropped two percentage points from when the February poll was conducted to when the April poll was done, from 42 per cent to 40 per cent. The percentage of those who think he is a "strong and decisive leader" also took a big hit, falling from 59 per cent to 52 per cent.

The survey also found decreasing beliefs among those polled that the president cares about average people and can manage the government effectively.

The Gallup poll surveyed a pool of 1,019 adults from April 5 to 9.

Gallup noted that the Trump administration's failure to come to a deal with Congress on repealing the Affordable Care Act - also known as Obamacare - may have contributed to this perception.

Data-focused website FiveThirtyEight tracks Trump's approval by aggregating and weighting polls.

Nokia 6 Android 7.1.1 Nougat OTA Update Being Rolled Out
On the camera front, the smartphone flaunts a 16-megapixel with PDAF, 1.0um sensor, f/2.0 aperture, and dual-tone LED flash. The model is receiving Android 7.1.1, so it is true that Nokia goes with everything to position itself in the top positions.

The survey comes as the White House is planning to undertake a substantive tax reform effort, with President Trump seeking to encourage job growth and investment.

In the same interview with the Journal, published April 12, Trump said he supported the Export-Import Bank, the credit agency he'd called "unnecessary" and "excess baggage" back in 2015.

These are not the numbers Trump wishes to see as he tries to sell his first 100 days as a success and push for momentum to see the scandals recede and his policy plans push forward. He has been silent on what the other polls have reported.

That attribute - a leadership style that's "strong and decisive" - was said to be extremely important to voters in at least one poll after the last election. In February, 56% of millennial voters said they believed he keeps his promises, but now just 34% say they do.

These views could shift again, depending on Trump's actions over the course of his presidency. Sleight of hand will get you only so far, and Democrats, Independents, even Republicans are feeling the disillusionment with the Trump swamp.
