A majority of voters think President Trump is keeping his campaign promises, while also believing that Washington elites are to blame for the delays in getting his policies enacted, according to a new poll released Thursday.

The George Washington University battleground poll found that 51 percent of voters agreed with the statement “Donald Trump had been keeping his campaign promises” with 44 percent disagreeing.

But when asked about the reasons for the delay in getting some of his promises enacted, 52 percent of respondents agreed that “Washington elites are to blame for the delay in passing some of these reforms.”

The poll comes at a time when Trump has been increasingly locking horns with top Republican leaders over priorities in Congress. Trump said at a rally in Phoenix, Arizona Tuesday that he was prepared to shut down the government if Congress would not fund a wall at the southern border.

On Thursday Trump attacked both Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) over their approach to raising the debt ceiling, saying that they had not followed his advice and as a result are at the mercy of Democrats.

“They didn’t do it so now we have a big deal with Dems holding them up (as usual) on Debt Ceiling approval,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Could have been so easy-now a mess!”

Responding to reports of a rift between him and McConnell, Trump said:

“The only problem I have with Mitch McConnell is that, after hearing Repeal & Replace for 7 years, he failed!” he wrote on Twitter, referring to the Senate’s failure to pass a bill repealing and replacing Obamacare. “That should NEVER have happened!”
