In a Gallup poll released on Monday, only 45 percent of adults polled say they believe Trump keeps his promises.

On two other measures, whether Trump "cares about the needs of people like you" and "can manage the government effectively", the president's numbers also fell, although Gallup noted those declines were not statistically significant.

Trump, from time to time, has been tweeting and re-tweeting polls that are favourable to his administration. The loss in confidence was particularly pronounced among voters ages 18 to 34 (22 percentage points), but the highest among women, with 25 percent fewer female voters saying they don't believe the president upholds his promises.
"Still 'strong and decisive"'Strong and decisive leadership" is the only characteristic in the Gallup survey for which a majority of U.S. adults (52 per cent) still give Trump positive grades.
