The national poll by the Quinnipiac University showed about 59 percent believe Trump should actually shut down his personal Twitter account, CBS news reported.

Voters told Trump, "You've got the job. Now be a leader not a tweeter," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"We're watching to make sure you put the country, not the Trump brand, first," said the voters.

Majority voters said they were "optimistic about the next four years with Donald Trump as president".

About 52 percent of voters said Trump's policies would help the US economy, 31 percent said they would hurt.

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

Most of the voters believed that Trump would take the country in the right direction.

The polls were conducted from 17 to 20 November when pollsters interviewed 1,071 voters nationwide.
