According to a new Morning Consult poll released Wednesday, more than two thirds of voters – 69 percent – say President Trump uses Twitter too much, compared to just 15 percent who say he uses it “about the right amount” and only 4 percent who say he should tweet more.
Even among Republicans, 53 percent say he uses the social media platform too much, compared to about 30 percent who say he should keep his Tweeting about the same. Fifty-nine percent of all voters say his tweeting is “a bad thing,” compared to just 23 percent who see his use of Twitter as positive.
