Twenty-eight percent of Republicans found Trump's tweets acceptable, compared to 46 who said they were unacceptable.

Pollsters also discovered that 51 percent of respondents think Trump's tweets targeting Brzezinski make them view the president somewhat or much less favorably.

The poll was conducted from June 29 to 30 among 1,989 registered voters. The margin of error is 2 percentage points.

Trump last week faced bipartisan uproar after going after the co-hosts of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," specifically targeting Brzezinski's appearance.

"I heard poorly rated  speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore)," Trump tweeted.

"Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came...to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!"

Many lawmakers chided Trump for the tweets, saying they were below the dignity of his office.
