New Poll Reveals What Americans REALLY Think About Trump Tweets

Linkedin Share

President Trump is undoubtedly changing the way in which the White House works, for better or for worse, but are the American people onboard?

Trump, even before landing in the highest office in the nation, was a proficient user of Twitter.  The realtime status-creation service has waxed and waned in popularity over the years, thanks to the rise of other social media platforms, but Trump’s use of the service from the Oval Office has forever embedded Twitter in the political pantheon.

For many, this was a relief.  No longer did we have to wait to hear the “spin” from the mainstream media regarding certain issues.  Instead, we could open the Twitter app and scroll down to which plugged in politicians were involved to get their take.

And, make no mistake about it, the President seems to always have a take.

As 2020 approaches, and Twitter remains in the spotlight, there are renewed concerns, however, that the President’s prolific publishing could cost him votes.

Despite the ability to broadcast his electoral weapon directly at his 60 million followers, could the president’s participation on his favorite social media network actually hamper his chances at winning a second term?

Nearly half of voters, 46 percent, in a POLITICO/Morning Consult poll say that, yes, Trump’s Twitter use hurts his reelection campaign — more than twice the number who say his direct-to-voters Twitter account is an asset.

Seven in 10 voters say Trump uses Twitter too much, while 14 percent say he uses it the right amount. Believe it or not, 1 percent of voters say Trump doesn’t tweet enough.

While President Trump certainly looks poised to breeze through the 2020 election, especially now that there are nearly two dozen democrats cannibalizing one another, it is unknown whether or not the President will take this poll to heart.

After all, there are a whole lot of candidates on the left who have yet to receive their nicknames.
