Majority of voters say President-elect Donald Trump should stop tweeting
A majority of American voters are optimistic about the next four years under a President-elect Donald Trump administration — but most also think the President-elect should get rid of his personal Twitter account while in office, a new nationwide poll finds.
A Quinnipiac University poll found 59% of voters surveyed said President-elect Trump should shut down his personal Twitter account — President-elect Trump’s signature form of communication.
Just this weekend, President-elect Trump was criticized after he took to Twitter to condemn the actions of Broadway’s “Hamilton” cast, when they urged Vice President-elect Mike Pence to help lead an inclusive administration during the show’s curtain call.
Meanwhile, 35% of voters said President-elect Trump should keep his personal Twitter account.
As far as the mood of voters — 59% of voters said they were “optimistic” about the upcoming four years with President-elect Trump as president, but 37% said they were generally “pessimistic,” according to the Quinnipiac University poll.
Additionally, 40% responded that they thought President-elect Trump’s policies would help their “personal financial situation,” compared to 23% who said they felt he would hurt them financially, and 34% who said his policies would make no difference.
The Quinnipiac University poll surveyed 1,071 voters between November 17-20 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
