A majority of US voters give Donald Trump credit as a strong and decisive leader while at the same time deriding him as both dishonest and untrustworthy, according to a poll by the Gallup organization on Monday.
“A review of Americans’ ratings of President Donald Trump across a series of personal dimensions shows that at least half consider him intelligent, strong and decisive, and able to bring about change,” a press release summarizing the report stated.
“However, much smaller proportions deem him honest, likable or admirable, or say he has appointed good advisers or works well with both parties.”
A slim 51 percent majority gave Trump credit for being a strong and decisive leader, the poll revealed.
However, 37 percent considered Trump honest and trustworthy — noteworthy given that it is below the president’s overall job approval rating, which consistently hovers in the low 40th percentile range, the release noted.
