A majority of American voters believe Donald Trump should delete his Twitter account, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.
The poll, released on Tuesday, found that 64 percent of voters say that the president-elect should close his personal account on the social media platform, while 32 percent believe he should keep it. Five percent were unsure.
Young voters were especially critical of Trump’s often controversial tweets. Seventy-one percent of voters between 18 to 34 years of age said Trump should remove himself from the platform, higher than any other age group.
Only Republicans, with a slim margin of 49-45, felt Trump should keep his account. Voters from every other party, across gender, age and racial group, disagreed.
The poll was conducted between Jan 5 and Jan 9, interviewing 899 voters nationwide on landlines and cellphones. The margin of error is +/- 3.3 percentage points.
Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, was quoted in a press release as saying:
“140 characters may not be enough to tell Donald Trump just how much Americans want him to knock off the tweeting"
As the release points out, Malloy’s statement came in under 140 characters.
