"President Donald Trump's image among Americans as someone who keeps his promises has faded in the first two months of his presidency, falling from 62% in February to 45%", Gallup reported. The change comes after Republicans failed to pass a plan to replace the Affordable Care Act and appear to face difficulties clearing tax reform and infrastructure proposals, among other hurdles to the sweeping agenda Trump promised during his campaign.
The view that Trump is a "strong and decisive leader" also fell, from 59 to 52 percent, and the expectation that he can deliver the "changes this country needs" dipped to 46 percent from 53 percent.
Only 36 percent said they viewed Trump as "honest and trustworthy", while 42 percent believed he "cares about the needs of people".
The only one of the six characteristics Gallup surveys where a majority of USA adults (52 percent) still give Trump positive grades is on his "strong and decisive leadership", but even that majority is slim, dropping seven percentage points from February. The poll, which was taken on Friday, asked 1,500 American adults what they thought of the job Trump was doing as president.

Shocking News!! Vidya Balan's "Begum Jaan' Has Been BANNED In Pakistan"
The film is set at a time when the country has just tasted independence and then the traumatic phase of partition begins. Begum Jaan (Vidya Balan), a hookah lover with a sharp tongue, is the owner of a brothel, which she calls her palace.
Trump, from time to time, has been tweeting and re-tweeting polls that are favourable to his administration. But even that majority is slim, dropping seven percentage points from February.
These are not the numbers Trump wishes to see as he tries to sell his first 100 days as a success and push for momentum to see the scandals recede and his policy plans push forward.
The latest figures also indicated 30% of respondents strongly approve of President Trump's job performance and 39% strongly disapprove. Being a strong and decisive leader is the only characteristic that a majority still say applies to Trump. In the Pew study, confidence in Trump's ability to work with Congress is down 16 points among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents and nine points among Republicans and Republican-leaners.
