Majority of Americans Think Trump Represents Strong Leader, Poll Reveals

Results of a recent Gallup Poll reveals that 62% of Americans polled said President Trump keeps his promises, 42% believe he is honest, with Republicans much more positive than Democrats.

Only 40 percent of Americans approve of the job that the president is doing, while 55 percent disapprove, according to the Gallup poll, which tracks the percentage of Americans who approve of disapprove of the job Trump is doing as president.

And according to CNN, the negative 15-point difference is also the highest of Trump's young presidency.

Trump's approval ratings were historically low straight off the bat, and it remains to be seen whether they can bounce back.

If Trump's poor numbers continue, that might create an opening for Democrats to make gains in Congress in 2018.

Trump, who entered office with a 45per cent approval rating - the lowest of any incoming president in USA history - now has the support of only 40per cent of Americans.

Trump's low approval rating is atypical for a new president.

59% said President Trump, only 3 weeks into his term, is a strong and decisive leader, with 53% polled saying he can bring about the changes this country needs. To put those numbers into perspective, Barack Obama and George W. Bush had a 64 and 57 percent approval ratings during the same period of time in their presidency, respectively.

But even the Rasmussen poll charted a significant 7per cent slip from January 26, when Trump's approval rating clocked in at a 59per cent high.
