Trump will take a longer time to fix the economy than he promised in the campaign.
But the president is facing increasing pressure to take action as the economy falters, according to a New York Times/CBS News poll released Monday.
Among those polled: 63 percent said the economy is headed in the wrong direction, while 44 percent said it is headed up.
Forty-five percent said they don’t know.
And only 33 percent of voters said the Trump administration is doing a good job managing the economy.
Trump has faced criticism for his slow pace of action on health care, tax reform and other issues, but he has insisted that his focus is on job creation.
He has said that he is focused on improving the economy, rather than trying to make the government look better.
On the campaign trail, Trump repeatedly pledged to get the economy going.
But with growth stalling and the unemployment rate at 5.8 percent, many are worried about the future of the economy and the jobs created.
The poll found that 44 percent of those polled said they think Trump is not taking a good enough job of keeping the economy on track, while 41 percent said he is.
And 54 percent of respondents said they have no confidence in his ability to get things done.
And the poll found many voters are concerned about the economy’s future, with nearly three-quarters saying it is the biggest concern.
Seventy-four percent of Americans said they were worried about job security and about the way their kids are being educated, while 43 percent said education was the biggest worry for them.
Seventeen percent said that the economy will not be able to sustain its current growth rate of about 3.5 percent, while 23 percent said this was the case.
In the poll, 1,005 adults were surveyed from Dec. 12 to Dec. 19.
The margin of error for the results is plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
