Most Americans Think Donald Trump Tweets ‘Too Much’

2 minute read

A majority of Americans think President-elect Donald Trump uses Twitter “too much,” according to a new poll released Tuesday.

The Morning Consult/Politico survey of registered voters found that 56% think Trump uses Twitter “too much,” while 16% said he uses it “about the right amount” and 5% said he doesn’t use it enough. Among people who voted for Trump, 37% said he uses Twitter too much. Unsurprisingly, that figure was much higher among people who voted for Hillary Clinton—79% said Trump uses the social media site too much.

Trump—who used Twitter to get out his message throughout the presidential campaign—has drawn criticism, especially since Election Day, for his frequent use of Twitter to make announcements and share opinions.

“If the press would cover me accurately & honorably, I would have far less reason to ‘tweet.’ Sadly, I don’t know if that will ever happen!” Trump said Monday, in a tweet of course.

Overall, 49% of respondents said they think Trump’s use of Twitter is a “bad thing,” while 23% said it’s a good thing.

The poll, conducted online from Dec. 1 to Dec. 2, surveyed 1,401 registered voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
