Most voters say Trump uses Twitter too much, says polling editor

Morning Consult editor Cameron Easley on Monday said that most voters think that President TrumpDonald John TrumpUS-Saudi Arabia policy needs a dose of 'realpolitik' Trump talks to Swedish leader about rapper A$AP Rocky, offers to vouch for his bail Matt Gaetz ahead of Mueller hearing: 'We are going to reelect the president' MORE uses Twitter too much, including the majority of Republicans. 

"There are few things that Democrats and Republicans agree on these days, but one thing we found in a May survey earlier this year with Politico was that 72 percent of all voters agreed that the president uses Twitter too much," Easley told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What Americas's Thinking," referring to a Morning Consult survey

"That includes a majority of Republicans," he continued. "And asked whether it was mainly a good thing or a bad thing in the way he used Twitter, 62 percent said it was mainly a bad thing. Now, Republicans were a little bit more lenient on that front — they were split 38 percent for or against whether it was a good or a bad thing.

"But you don't find too many issues regarding the president that splits the Republican base that way," he said.

Easley's comments come after a new American Barometer survey, conducted by Hill.TV and the HarrisX polling company, found that 37 percent of respondents said Trump's tweets have a negative impact on the stock market.

Trump tweeted last week 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.
