A majority of Americans believe President Donald Trump is delivering on his promises, according to a new poll.
A new Morning Consult/Politco poll found 56 percent of Americans believe that in the few weeks Trump has been in office, he has been faithful to the promises he made to the voters while campaigning for the White House. Only 27 percent of voters surveyed said Trump’s performance has not matched his promises.
“Basically all I’ve done is keep my promise,” Trump said Friday, summing up the first weeks of his administration. “One by one, we’re checking off the promises we made to the people of the United States. One by one, a lot of promises. And we will not stop until the job is done.”
Trump’s efforts to do what he promised was noted Friday by Brexit leader Nigel Farage, who spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
” … what I’m seeing, 36 days into the Trump presidency, I’m seeing something quite remarkable. I’m seeing an elected leader who is trying to put in place the platform on which he was elected! How about that?” What Trump is doing, by trying to put in place that ticket on which he was elected, he is restoring faith in the democratic process and good for him!” Farage said.
On Monday, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said the budget Trump will outline Tuesday night will continue Trump’s focus on delivering what he promised.
“It’s the president keeping his promises and doing exactly what he said he was going to do,” he said. “We are taking his words and we turning them into policies and dollars.”
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the budget will illustrate Trump’s promise to current Social Security recipients.
“The president understands the commitment that was made to seniors,” said Spicer. “Regardless of whether you voted for him or not, whether or not you agree with his policies, he’s a man of his word.”
The new poll showed a stark political divide in assessing Trump’s performance.
Although 88 percent of Trump’s supporters said he was making good on his pledges to the voters, only 50 percent of Clinton supporters were willing to give Trump a passing grade on delivering what he promised.
The poll found that 69 percent of voters believe Trump has accomplished as much or more than they expected.
The poll also showed the slow and steady rise in optimism for the future.
The day after Trump’s November election, the poll found that 71 percent of Americans said the nation was on the wrong track. That figure has declined to 57 percent in the latest poll.
The poll has a margin of error of two points.
