Trump Approval Rating Sees Modest Rise After Military Strikes


The belief that Trump keeps his promises saw the steepest drop, falling from 62 percent at the beginning of February to 45 percent in early April, a loss of 17 percentage points.

While 39 percent is still abysmally low, President Trump will no doubt see the correlation and do what he can to keep that number climbing. In February, almost two-thirds said they thought the president keeps his promises and now only 40 percent believe he does. So did the number of people who think he can "bring about changes this country needs, " which fell seven percentage points, too, to 46 percent.

More U.S. citizens have lost faith in President Donald Trump's ability to keep his promises, a new survey finds. But Rasmussen Reports-which has, in the past, been criticized for results skewing toward Republicans as compared to similar polls-found on Monday that Trump's approval rating had jumped up to 50 percent. For the past three weeks, the Economist/YouGov poll has found that just 50 or 51 percent of US adults said Trump was either a "very strong" or "somewhat strong" leader in a question about leadership qualities, down from 61 percent in the results after his inauguration.

As for keeping his promises to his own party, the poll shows an 11% drop among Republicans and a 9% decreases among conservatives. At least one poll has his approval rating on the rise, with the leader of the free world passing an important benchmark for support. The poll, which was taken on Friday, asked 1,500 American adults what they thought of the job Trump was doing as president.

Other recent polls have also found that Trump's reputation as a strong leader have taken something of a hit.

As Gallup pointed out, these numbers are part of a deeper systemic problem in Trump's presidential image.
