Watch: 6 Trump Voters Explain Their Mixed Feelings About the Early Days of His Presidency

According to a new Washington Post poll, just 2% of Trump supporters regret their vote after approximately 90 days. But there are some signs of skepticism, even among Trump's diehard supporters.


On Day 95 of Trump's presidency, CNN's Alisyn Camerota hosted a panel discussion with six Trump supporters who evaluated the man they elected.

Three said they were "very happy" with Trump's performance so far. Two had "reservations." One completely regretted his vote, calling Trump's first 100 days "a disaster."

“He’s got enough time to get on Twitter and rant and rave, and on top of that lie on Twitter,” Scott McCommons told Camerota. “I voted for the man to make America great again... he’s not doing what I thought." 

Another voter, Susan DeLemus, is still taking a wait-and-see approach.

"I think he tried," DeLemus said, but noted, "I don't think he had as much of an idea as we had hoped."

A third voter, Paula Johnson, blamed House Speaker Paul Ryan and "the swamp" for the collapse of the American Health Care Act.

"When you're dealing with the House and the Senate, they are their own little clique," she insisted. 

"He did say he would be able to bring warring factions together," retorted Camerota.

Kraig Moss, another voter, agreed. 

"He's not willing to sit down at the table and negotiate," he said of Trump. "He tried to push through a health care plan that would do the opposite [of what he campaigned on]. He said he would create a lower deductible and lower cost and increase coverage."

But the new bill "would cut services and eliminate Medicaid; eliminate $5 million in services to opioid substance abuse," pointed out Moss. "Regardless of whether he did know or didn't know [what was in the GOP's health bill], shame on him."
