Gallop: President Trump’s Credibility Just Took a Staggering Hit


The credibility of Donald Trump as revealed by a new Gallop poll released this week.

The headline really says it all: “Majority in US No Longer Thinks Trump Keeps His Promises.” But they go a little deeper, because like all polls, the numbers tell a story.

According to Gallop, the number of Americans who think Donald Trump keeps his promises is down from 62% in February to 45% this week. They go on to say, “The public is also less likely to see him as a “strong and decisive leader,” as someone who “can bring about the changes this country needs” or as “honest and trustworthy.”

Such a huge slide in such a key area should signal to the Trump Administration that they are in serious trouble, and any one-time perceived mandate has dwindled. “Over the past two months, Trump’s ratings have declined at least marginally on all six characteristics that Gallup measured in its April 5-9 poll.”

The key characteristics Gallop references are “keeps his promises,” “is a strong and decisive leader,” “can bring about changes this country needs,” “is honest and trustworthy,” “cares about the needs of people like you,” and “can manage the government effectively.”
