According to Gallup, most Americans no longer believes Donald Trump keeps his promises.

"More than half of poll respondents - 52 percent - said they view Trump as a ‶strong and decisive leader".

The decline in faith that he would follow through on his pledges spanned across demographics - women, men, liberals, moderates and conservatives.

For the past three weeks, The Economist/YouGov poll has found that just 50 or 51 per cent of U.S. adults said Trump was either a "very strong" or "somewhat strong" leader in a question about leadership qualities, down from 61 per cent in the results after his inauguration. Just 30 percent said they trusted Trump more.

The first 88 days of Trump's presidency have seen a string of controversies without any major legislative victories, capped off by Republican lawmakers' failure to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

A new poll shows President Donald Trump's approval rating reaching 50 percent, its highest-level since mid-March.

Other recent polls have also found that Trump's reputation as a strong leader have taken something of a hit.

Just 46 percent of Americans said Trump "can bring about the change the country needs", also a decrease of seven points since February. "Supporters have expressed unhappiness that more has not been done on taxes and immigration, in addition to healthcare".

After Republicans won control of the White House and both houses of Congress, 61 percent of Americans told the Pew Research Center in December that they were very or somewhat confident that Trump could work with the House and Senate. That's down from 42 percent in February, a 6 percent drop.

Most Americans have viewed Trump unfavourably since before his inauguration and continue to do so almost 90 days into his term in office.

Of course, the numbers for that characteristic could still shift for Trump as his presidency continues.
