WASHINGTON – Sixty four percent Americans want President elect Donald Trump to leave Twitter, while 51 percent disapprove of him since he won the presidential elections two months ago, a poll published on Wednesday said.
The percentage of Americans wanting Trump to leave Twitter swelled to 71 percent among respondents aged between 18-34 years, according to the poll by Quinnipiac University in Connecticut.
Only 32 percent of the respondents – 26 percent among the young people – think the way Trump uses Twitter is appropriate.
Trump’s tweets may have something to do with the fact that 51 percent of the respondents have an unfavorable view of his management against the 37 percent who approve.
The poll’s findings contrast with the figures of current U.S. President Barack Obama, who will leave the White House on Jan. 20 with an approval rating of 55 percent, his highest since 2009, the first year of his term, and an unfavorable rating of 39 percent.
The poll also reveals that 45 percent Americans believe Trump will be a worse president than Obama while 34 percent say he will be better and 15 percent say he will be the same.
Nonetheless, 52 percent were optimistic about the future of the country’s economy and 47 percent believe Trump will help the economy while only 31 percent say he will harm it.
The poll was conducted between Jan. 2-5 among 899 registered voters throughout the country and has a margin of error of 3.3 points.
