Many Americans Don't Think Trump Can Carry Out His Agenda
Only 3 in 10 Americans surveyed said he has a mandate to fulfill his campaign promises.By Katherine Biek | November 16, 2016
Less than a third of Americans in a recent poll said president-elect Donald Trump has a mandate to carry out the agenda he laid out during his campaign.
That poll is from The Washington Post and the Schar School of Policy and Government. Instead, 59 percent of those surveyed said Trump should compromise with Democrats on parts of his policy agenda that they strongly oppose.
Since he was elected president Nov. 8, Trump has walked back a few campaign promises.
