Poll: 64 Percent Of Americans Want Trump To Delete His Twitter Account
Turns out that a majority of Americans believe that President-elect Donald Trump should delete his Twitter.
Quinnipiac University released the results for a number of different polls today, one of which included the country’s thoughts on Trump’s Twitter account.
Here is how the results breakdown: 64 percent of voters think that the entrepreneur and The Apprentice star should delete his profile once he is sworn into office (up from 59 percent who said the same back in November). Once separated into demographics the results then revealed that 71 percent of people polled between the ages of 18-34 think that Trump should absolutely delete his account; Republicans were divided with a 49-45 split in favor of him keeping it; and 80 percent of Democrats want him to delete it.
The poll was comprised of 899 people and the question was asked between January 5-9. You can check out the results here. However, judging by the fact that Trump continues to send off tweets that sound like they are being written by an angsty teenager, the chances of him actually deleting his Twitter seem pretty thin.
As inauguration day inches closer Trump is still having problems getting a roster of performers to be a part of the event. So far the only confirmed performers for the inauguration is 16-year-old Jackie Evancho (a former America’s Got Talent singer), the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Talladega College’s Tornado Marching Band (the latter of which has caused some controversy with alumni).
“We were a bit horrified to hear of the invitation,” Shirley Ferrill, a member of Talladega’s Class of 1974, said in an interview with CBS. “I don’t want my alma mater to give the appearance of supporting him. Ignore, decline or whatever, but please don’t send our band out in our name to do that.”
