Trump has displayed his desire to aggregate information in public as well, albeit from selective sources, turning campaign rallies into public polling opportunities and asking invited guests as events he attends for inputs on hiring decisions - like he did during the vice presidential and Cabinet nominee search process. The president has flip-flopped on campaign positions ranging from trade with China to intervention in Syria.
According to the poll, Trump's approval rating among his supporters is at 93 percent. Republicans in Congress are not abandoning the president, but nor are they overly compliant. Among Trump voters 83% approved. According to the poll results, 49 percent say Trump is doing a worse job as president than President Obama, while only 39 percent think Trump is outperforming Obama. Independents disapprove by 52 percent.
Only 32 percent of Americans ages 18 to 29 years old say they approve of Trump's time as president so far.
Among the things he hoped to accomplish during the first 100 days in office were: tax reform, repealing and replacing Obamacare, investing in infrastructure and ending illegal immigration.
The Elon Poll found 56 percent of North Carolina voters think Trump has been true to his pledges, even while almost 60 percent disagree with one of them - the plan to build a wall along the Mexican border.
"You're really into your own little cocoon, because you have such massive protection that you really can't go anywhere", Trump told a trio of Reuters reporters in an interview to mark the impending close of his first 100 days in office.
However, majorities have still offered negative impressions of Trump's presidency so far across a range of questions about his handling of the job, the poll showed.
But in the view of officials at American Bridge, the Russian Federation controversy could eventually sway voters if more information about the connections comes to light.
When it comes to the wall in Mexico, it still remains unclear how the project will be financed.
Voter assessments of Trump do not appear to be improving since the inauguration.
"President Trump is doing what he can to act decisively", said H.W. Brands, professor of history at the University of Texas at Austin.
The calls come at all hours of the day: in the evenings, late at night and sometimes as early as "three or four o'clock in the morning" - whenever inspiration strikes - said one source who speaks regularly with Trump.
An analysis of Reuters/Ipsos polling data shows slippage in Trump's approval ratings, with lower enthusiasm among white men without a college degree, the core of his political base. Now he is bragging about sending out more than anybody else ever dared, because now having that contrary opinion is more useful-if anybody, anywhere is surprised by this outcome they should hang their heads in shame.
