37 percent of voters say Trump's tweets hurt the stock market

Thirty-seven percent of voters polled said President TrumpDonald John TrumpDavid Axelrod after Ginsburg cancer treatment: Supreme Court vacancy could 'tear this country apart' EU says it will 'respond in kind' if US slaps tariffs on France Ginsburg again leaves Supreme Court with an uncertain future MORE's tweets have a negative impact on the stock market, according to a new American Barometer survey.

The poll found that 21 percent of voters surveyed said the tweets have no effect on the stock market, while 19 percent said Trump's Twitter comments have a mostly negative effect, but sometimes positive, effect.

Thirteen percent said the tweets had a mostly positive impact mixed with some negative effects, with 9 percent saying the tweets have a positive effect on the stock market.

The survey results come about a week after Trump tweeted that he could raise tariffs on China if it did not agree to overhaul its trade practices.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down almost 800 points and the S&P 500 dropped more than 3 percent following the tweets.

"The stock market does not like uncertainty, and the president's Twitter feed is nothing but uncertainty," political analyst Bill Schneider told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking."

Schneider said Monday that every morning it's uncertain "whether he's going to attack China, or if he's going to make peace with China. Whether he's going to embrace [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, or whether he's going to go after Putin. The stock market doesn't like that."

The American Barometer is a daily survey conducted by the HarrisX polling company on behalf of Hill.TV.

The consumer preferences poll was conducted Dec. 7–8 among 1,000 registered voters. The sampling margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
