A higher percentage of liberals than conservatives follow President Donald Trump on Twitter, a nationwide survey of the president’s social media presence reveals.

A national post-election survey conducted by McLaughlin & Associates found that 25% of the nation’s voters keep tabs on Trump via at least one of the following social media platforms:

  • Twitter: 15%
  • Facebook: 14%
  • Instagram: 9%
  • Total: 25% (follow/like on one or more of the above)

Ironically, a higher percentage of self-described liberals (21%) than conservatives (17%) follow Trump on Twitter. Only 9% of moderates say they follow the president on Twitter.

The same percentage of both liberals (30%) and conservatives (30%) follow Trump on at least one of the three platforms – nearly doubling the 16% of moderates who report following Trump on social media.

Trump’s massive reach on social media ranges from a low of 2.6 million likes/4.6 million followers on his presidential Facebook page to a high of 55.7 million followers on his personal Twitter account:

The national survey of 1,000 general election voters was conducted on November 6, 2018.
