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.


  • Trump is my President Elect

    Prob the same people who think the MSM is unbiased. I rather read Trumps tweets and short videos than hear what the news has to say because that way im seeing and hearing what Trump has to say and not how the media twisted it to support their agenda
