Sixty-four percent of Americans say Donald Trump's actions and statements during his presidency have made them less confident in his ability to serve as the U.S. leader, according to a new CNN poll released Wednesday.

Additionally, just 40 percent think Trump can bring the kind of change the country needs while only 24 percent think leaders of other countries respect the president.

The poll, conducted by independent research company SSRS just as Trump was starting his trip to Asia last week, recorded lower marks for the president on several fronts:

  • 55 percent think Trump is doing a poor job of keeping the important promises he made during the presidential campaign.
  • 59 percent have an unfavorable opinion of Trump compared to 39 percent who have a favorable opinion.
  • Only 20 percent trust the things they hear in official communications from the White House.
  • 64 percent say the words "honest and trustworthy" do not apply to Trump.
  • 64 percent say they are not proud to have Trump as their president.
  • 51 percent disapprove of the way Trump is handling taxes.
  • 58 percent disapprove of the way he is handling his role as commander in chief.
  • 58 percent disapprove of the way he is handling the situation with North Korea.
  • 83 percent of Republicans say Trump "cares about people like" them.
  • 87 percent of Republicans said they have a favorable opinion of the president.

Almost seven in 10 call the nation's economy "good," though just 45 percent approve of how Trump is handling it.

The poll was conducted by telephone Nov. 2-5 among a random sample of 1,021 adults.
