MIAMI (CBSMiami) — American voters want President-elect Donald Trump to stop tweeting, according to a new Quinnipiac University national poll.

About 59 percent believe Trump should actually shut down his personal Twitter account, says the poll released Tuesday.

“Voters tell President-elect Donald Trump, ‘You’ve got the job. Now be a leader not a tweeter,’” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. “And we’re watching to make sure you put the country, not the Trump brand, first.”

As for what they expect, about 59 percent of American voters say they are “optimistic about the next four years with Donald Trump as president,” according to an independent Quinnipiac University Poll.

Whether his policies would help or hurt the U.S. economy, about 52 percent of voters say they will help while 31 percent say they will hurt.

As for the calling to be a united American nation, 49 percent of voters say Trump will do more to divide the country while 47 percent say he will unite it.

Despite that, the majority (53%) believe he will take the country in the right direction while 40 percent disagree.

The results come from polls conducted from November 17th to the 20th when pollsters interviewed 1,071 voters nationwide. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points.
