Most Americans give poor marks to US President Donald Trump’s work across a range of issues, yet broadly mistrust the opposition Democratic Party as well, according to a new poll.
Two years into Trump’s presidency and after a month-plus partial government shutdown, a wide deficit of confidence marks public views of the president and the government in Washington, the ABC News/Washington Post poll released Monday found.
Only 35 percent express confidence in the Republican president to make the right decisions for the country’s future; 64 percent don’t trust him in this central task, according to the survey.
But it’s no better for the Democrats in Congress. Just 34 percent have confidence in the opposition party, while 65 percent lack trust. For Republicans in Congress it was 30-69 percent.
US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the highest ranking Democrat in Congress, has 30-62 percent confidence deficit.
