Cynicism about promises

I’m not playing for the religious vote in this game anyways, but I got a bunch of cynicism detected for policy changes right after the election, but I was doing things I promised to do. I promised to raise gender equality and secularity of education, I then raised secularity of education, liberalized abortion policy and implemented a GM ban after the election to get my promises done.

Does it really make sense for people to cynical about me doing exactly what I promised to do? Policy reversals, broken promises or even strong action about something I was quiet on during the campaign would all make sense, but not so much on being cynical about keeping promises.

I would say Yes. The media is fickle, and this jives with how even a small deal would be amplified.
