A majority of Americans trust that President-elect Donald Trump will fulfill his campaign promises on immigration and other issues, according to a new survey released to The Hill.
Sixty-four percent of registered voters polled by Harvard University’s Center for American Political Studies and the National Research Group said Trump will be either very or somewhat effective in fulfilling his campaign promises, not only on immigration but also to invest in the nation’s infrastructure, to cut taxes and to repeal ObamaCare.
Seventy-eight percent approve of his infrastructure promise, and 53 percent think he’ll keep it.
A majority of Americans also approve of a proposal to cut individual income taxes, according to the poll. But Americans are slightly more confident the president-elect will cut taxes on corporations, as opposed to cutting taxes for individuals.
Fifty-four percent of respondents trust the president-elect will uphold his campaign promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare — a pledge he often made during his campaign rallies. But only 46 percent of respondents approve of the idea to repeal and replace President Obama’s signature healthcare law.
Mark Penn, managing partner and president of The Stagwell Group, which oversees the National Research Group, said the results suggest Trump could build a consensus around some of his policies.
