Just 13 Percent Of Americans Say Trump Is Honest And Trustworthy, Poll Finds

A newly released poll found that just 13 percent of Americans consider President Trump to be honest and trustworthy.

Trump’s honesty and trustworthiness score have fallen 3 points from when Survey Monkey started conducting the tracking polls in February of 2017.

Thirty-five percent of those surveyed said they believed Trump has the ability to get things done, while 33 percent of respondents said he was tough enough for the job.

Forty-one percent of Americans polled said the president stands up for what he believes in.

Forty percent of Americans approve of President Trump’s job performance.

The Survey Monkey tracking polls were conducted between Feb. 1, 2017, and May 9, 2018, among 929,225 adults.

Earlier this month, The Washington Post’s The Fact Checker’s database reported that President Trump has made 3,001 false or misleading claims in the 466 days since he took the oath of office.

Trump is now averaging nearly 6.5 false or misleading claims a day — a number that continues to steadily increase. In the president’s first 100 days, he averaged 4.9 false claims a day.

Since the Post last updated their tally two months ago, Trump has averaged about 9 false claims a day. Trump also has a proclivity to repeat many of his false or misleading statements, according to a Post analysis.

The paper has counted at least 113 claims that the president has repeated at least three times.
