Less than half of Americans think President Trump keeps his promises

It seems Americans are losing faith in President Trump. A new Gallup poll released Monday shows less than half of Americans believe their commander in chief keeps his promises — a sharp decline from the nearly two-thirds who believed in Trump in February.

Just 45 percent of respondents in Monday's poll said they believe President Trump keeps his promises, down from 62 percent two months ago. In that time, Trump has evinced several changes of heart in key policies, reversing his rhetoric on NATO, China as a currency manipulator, the Export-Import Bank, and more. He has also launched an airstrike on Syria after years spent urging former President Barack Obama not to intervene in the country's civil war and dropped America's largest non-nuclear weapon in Afghanistan despite touting an "America first" foreign policy.

The Gallup poll surveyed 1,019 adults over the phone from April 5 to 9. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. See the poll's full results here.
