Poll: Majority think President Trump's tweets demean the office of the presidency

Some Americans have always condemned President Donald Trump's use of Twitter as unpresidential, however, criticism of his choice to use the social media platform without filter has recently reached a fever pitch.

The president's unconventional habit appears to cast a dark shadow over his office, with most people thinking Trump's tweets demean the office of the presidency, according to a new AOL News survey.

The poll finds 74 percent said Trump's tweets did demean the presidency. Meanwhile, only 23 percent of respondents said the president's tweets did not demean the office. Another three percent of respondents said they weren't sure.

Pundits, politicians sound off on Trump's 'Mika' tweet
Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America.
I do not think making fun of a woman's looks is acceptable. I get it every day of my life. I think that tweet is cruel - and unpresidential
The Insulter-in-Chief sinks to new lows -- and that's saying a lot. SAD and UNPRESIDENTIAL. https://t.co/xJxqseaGLl
Nobody could have foreseen that the 71 year old POTUS who's acted one way his entire life, and during campaign, would act that way as POTUS
Please just stop. This isn't normal and it's beneath the dignity of your office.
Here is a list of all the important policy priorities Trump advanced today by attacking Mika Brzezinski's bleeding face-lift:
FLOTUS Spox defends Trump tweet: "As [FLOTUS] stated publicly in the past, when her husband gets attacked he punches back 10 times harder."
Sarah Huckabee Sanders on President's tweet this morning: "This is a President who fights fire with fire"
This is not okay. As a female in politics I am often criticized for my looks. We should be working to empower women. https://t.co/sV6WDE0EUD
Good time to remind you that @MorningMika is smart as hell, stronger than any critic, & a role model for what we hope our daughters can be.
I guess it's coincidence that Trump's attacks on women always involve low intelligence, hysteria and blood.
@Rosie, @megynkelly, @CarlyFiorina, @morningmika, flat-chested women, Alicia Machado...long list of women Trump's attacked. He's disgusting.
MESSAGE DISCIPLINE! Today ALL comms coming out of WH shd be focused on #KatesLaw and #NoSanctuaryforCriminalsAct -- not cable TV hosts.
Shelley Moore Capito, a key GOP swing vote on health care, calls Trump's tweets about Mika "distasteful"
McCain on Trump tweets: "We've got all these issues and challenges in front of us and instead we're talking morning talk show hosts."
@BenSasse Do more than say please. He's not going to stop. He's 71, has the morals and management style of a mob bo… https://t.co/z1QQ9udUeT
.@SenatorLankford: "The President’s tweets today don't help our political or national discourse and do not provide a positive role model"
Paul Ryan on Trump's morning tweets: "Obviously, I don't see that as an appropriate comment." "https://t.co/9MvsyxZPzJ
The irony: @Morning_Joe — already a hot watch in the trump era — will get even bigger after this!
Quick reaction from 2 GOP Hill staffers to Trump attack on Mika: How does this help pass health care when he needs Murkowski and Collins?
Mika's tweet, by the way, has surpassed the president's in twitter popularity. https://t.co/gKbwl19St6
GOP Rep. Tom Reed on Trump's Mika Brzezinski tweets: "Maybe the intent is to distract from the health care debate" https://t.co/ggwGccYUum
Trump's tweet on Mika isn't just lashing out. He has long made a practice of humiliating women in public. Did it to Michelle Fields too.
We are competitors, but Joe and Mika deserve respect. Mister President this attack is beneath the dignity of your o… https://t.co/tDWFiOSg7C

The president's tweets have been making headlines and generating backlash from both sides of the aisle in recent weeks.

The president has personally attacked MSNBC morning hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on multiple occasions over the past week via Twitter.

Trump sent out a pair of tweets last Thursday, claiming that "low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!"

A Quinnipiac University poll released the same day as his first attack on the MSNBC hosts reported similar findings to the AOL News poll. The June 29 survey found that 61 percent of American voters think Trump should stop tweeting from his personal Twitter account. Thirty-two percent said the president should continue tweeting.

Both Democrats and Republicans publically decried Trump's recent Twitter behavior.

GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham tweeted his response, saying "Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America."

The president seemed unphased by the backlash and doubled down on his attack Saturday, taking more personal shots at Brzezinski and Scarborough.

Just weeks before the personal shots, Trump tweeted that the fake mainstream media don't like when he uses social media because he is able to "get the honest and unfiltered message out."

The president added more fuel to his Twitter fire on Sunday when he tweeted an edited video of him beating up a CNN logo. The controversial tweet was just the latest in a long line of attacks the president has aimed at the media.
