An overwhelming majority of U.S. voters want President Donald Trump to stop tweeting, according to a poll released Thursday.

A Quinnipiac University poll conducted between Jan. 5 – 9 found that 69 percent of voters would like to see the president stop tweeting from his personal Twitter account, compared to the 26 percent who said Trump should not stop tweeting.

Trump’s Twitter habit was not even popular among Republicans. The poll found 49 percent of Republican voters would rather have the president stop tweeting. Forty-four percent of Republicans believe he should continue to tweet.

The poll was released the day after White House chief of staff John Kelly denied that Trump’s tweets make his job more difficult in an interview on CNN Thursday. (RELATED: Kelly Smacks Down Idea That Trump’s Tweets Make Life More ‘Difficult’)

Trump blasted those who were not happy with his use of social media in August, saying anyone who does not want him using the platform as president is an enemy.

“Only the Fake News Media and Trump enemies want me to stop using Social Media (110 million people). Only way for me to get the truth out!,” Trump tweeted.

The poll was conducted through live interviews by phone. There was a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
