Elon Poll: Trump keeping promises, even those NC voters dislike
Posted April 26
Mebane, N.C. — A majority of North Carolina voters polled last week agreed that President Donald Trump is staying true to his campaign promises although his approval rating has fallen since the November election.
The Elon Poll found 56 percent of North Carolina voters think Trump has been true to his pledges, even while nearly 60 percent disagree with one of them – the plan to build a wall along the Mexican border.
Overall, the poll found that 41.6 percent of voters approve of the job Trump as done so far. That's a dip from the 49.9 percent who voted for him in the Tar Heel State.
Forty-nine percent of North Carolina voters polled said Trump is doing a worse job as president than President Obama, while 39 percent say he is doing better.
Pollsters called 506 likely voters – on landlines and cell phones – between April 18 and 21. Survey results have a margin of error of +/- 4.36 percentage points.
The president's approval tracks largely along party lines. Among Democrats, 87 percent disapprove of Trump’s performance, while 88 percent of Republicans approve of the way he is handling the job.
Even 29 percent of Democrats, who may disagree with Trump's agenda, believe he’s holding true to his campaign promises.
Some bipartisan agreement shows when voters were asked about Trump's use of Twitter. Overall, 73 percent of those surveyed disapproved of the president's use of the platform. Fifty percent of Republicans said his Tweets were inappropriate while 94 percent of Democrats agreed with that statement.
