A majority of Americans say that President Donald Trump is “too confrontational,” according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll.

The survey, the Washington Examiner reported, found that 57 percent of likely voters said Trump is "too confrontational." Only 6 percent said the president is "too cooperative," while 32 percent said his leadership style is "about right," the paper said.

The president is known for picking fights on Twitter, with targets including former rival Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, the House Freedom Caucus, and actress Meryl Streep.

The poll also found that a minority of likely voters — 38 percent — say the president’s performance as a leader is “good” or “excellent.” Forty-eight percent of respondents said Trump’s leadership has been “poor.”

The poll was conducted March 28-29, after the American Health Care Act — the House Republican leadership's health care, which bill Trump supported — failed, but prior to Trump’s tweets attempting to place blame for the failure of the bill on Republican lawmakers in the House Freedom Caucus.
