A new poll released by USA Today/Suffolk University reports that registered voters by more than a 2-to-1 margin want Donald Trump to cut down on his tweeting.
Fifty-nine percent of the 1,000 surveyed say Trump “should stop tweeting so much,” while just 28 percent agree with the statement “his tweets are a good way to communicate directly with Americans.”
An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll taken just before Trump took office on Jan. 17 showed 69 percent of those polled agreeing with the statement that “in an instant, messages can have unintended major implications without careful review.” Just 26 percent said the tweeting “allows a president to directly communicate to people immediately.”
Overall in the new survey, 47 percent approve of the job Trump is doing six weeks into his presidency and 44 percent disapprove, making him the first president in modern times not to score majority approval at this early point in his tenure.
On the question of right-track/wrong-track direction of the country, 46 percent to 43 percent say the country is headed in the right direction, a 12-point upward swing from the same poll question in December.
