New Poll: Trump Approval Back Up To 50

New Poll: Trump Approval Back Up To 50

The Gallup survey of 1,019 adults was conducted April 5th through 9th and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

A majority of Americans no longer believe President Donald Trump keeps his promises, according to a new poll.

In the two months since, however, Trump appeared to walk away from repealing the Affordable Care Act after Republicans failed to agree on the healthcare replacement bill that Trump stood behind. Less than 50% of the public think the president "can bring about changes this country needs" (46%), "cares about the needs of people like you" (42%), or "can manage the government effectively" (41%). "While still more than half, that number is also down from February, when 59 percent viewed Trump as a ‶strong and decisive leader", a downward slide of 7 percent.

And while the overall approval ratings are ticking up, another Gallup poll shows Americans are still concerned about Trump.

It's the first time that Trump's approval rating has been at 50 percent in nearly a month, according to Rasmussen Reports. At the start of April, Gallup had Trump's approval rating at 38 percent, among the lowest numbers of his young presidency.

However, Trump saw a drop across the board in people who believe he keeps his promises.

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

Being a "strong and decisive leader" was the only positive characteristic in the new poll that still applied to Trump in the view of most respondents. And in its writeup of the latest results, Gallup notes that's also possible for how people perceive his ability to stick to his word. Forty percent of women think Trump carries out his promises compared to 51 percent of men, while 81 percent of Republicans vs. 16 percent of Democrats said the same.
