Most Americans are tuning out the president’s non-stop tweets and ignore his attacks on businesses


Most Americans tune out President Donald Trump’s non-stop binge of tweets, according to a poll from the nonpartisan Public Affairs Council and Morning Consult.

But Democrats read them more often than Republicans, 46 percent to 43 percent.

Twitter is the president’s favorite communication tool and he blasts out his thoughts multiple times a day whether it’s to tout a candidate, declare himself the victim of a ‘witch hunt,’ praise first lady Melania Trump’s trip to Africa, or to #MAGA (Make America Great Again). 

But most Americans – 59 percent – say they never read or rarely check out what he has to say although the president’s @realdonaldtrump twitter account has a mammoth 54.9 million followers. 

However, in contract, 15 percent of respondents said they read his thoughts very often. 

But his plethora of tweets don’t seem to be changing any minds.

When Trump criticizes a company in a tweet, only 10 percent have a less favorable opinion of said company and another 10 percent actually have a more favorable opinion.

In the past Trump has targeted a diverse range of companies in his twitter rants, including Amazon, Nike, and the New York Times. 

The poll was conducted between August 27 and 29, with online interviews of 2,202 adults. It has a margin of error of 2 points.
