Trump's 100-days promises: Fewer than half carried out

Donald Trump's obsession with cable TV is well documented, as is his tendency to be influenced by what he watches; his late-night tweet rants tend to sync up with Fox News programming, and he recently made a foreign-policy decision based on televised images that "had a big impact" on him. President Barack Obama, for example, had a 69-26 percent approval rating near his 100 days in office. "‶Although the sample sizes are small, those who say the party is out of touch are less likely to say they'd support Clinton again, compared with those who see it as in touch".

That difference in remaining support for the two candidates would mean Trump would best Clinton 43 to 40% in a hypothetical rematch today. The rest of the ABC News/Washington Post poll respondents said they would either vote for a third party or not vote at all.

The president has often dismissed low approval ratings and polls as "fake news", singling-out a January survey that showed he would be the lowest-rated incoming president in modern history. Would still beat Hillary in popular vote. "ABC News/Washington Post Poll (wrong big on election) said nearly all stand by their vote on me & 53% said, strong leader". Although he retained his signature bravado and a salesman's confidence in his upward trajectory, he displayed an understanding that many of his own lofty expectations for his first 100 days in office have not been met.

"No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!"

As President Trump approaches his 100th day in office, he has already begun to address his accomplishments and media perception at rallies and on Twitter.

Respondents to Sunday's polls also weighed in on a few areas unique to Trump. The poll found that 57 percent of respondents, including 28 percent of Republicans, say that government should be doing more to solve problems and help people.

And a majority, 54%, said they did not have a problem with Trump working out of Mar-a-lago, his private club in Florida.

The Washington Post/ABC poll surveyed 1,004 adults by phone from April 17 to 20 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
