Poll: Majority of voters want Trump to delete Twitter account

A majority of voters want President-elect Donald Trump to delete his Twitter account, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday.

Fifty-nine percent say that the incoming president should shut down his personal account on the social media site, and 35 percent disagree.

Still, 59 percent also say that they are optimistic about Trump’s presidency. About half, 49 percent, say he will be a good or great president, and 43 percent he will be not so good or bad.

Trump’s Twitter habits have at times inflamed critics and allies alike.

During the campaign, he retweeted white supremacists, celebrated Cinco de Mayo by sharing a picture of him eating a taco bowl and routinely launched twitter attacks on his opponents.
