It was not that most Americans were doing much better financially - nearly 40 percent said they were doing about the same and 16 percent said they were doing worse than they were a year ago. Overall, 73 percent of those surveyed disapproved of the president's use of the platform.
Democrats also took part in recent protests over the president's refusal to release his tax returns and they are focused on a special congressional election in Georgia in June that some see as a test of Trump's popularity.
Pollsters called 506 likely voters - on landlines and cell phones - between April 18 and 21.
Others even go so far as to say Trump's proclivity to alleviate bad press by pointing the finger is a practice he's employed for years.
The drop mirrors what voters are feeling across the nation.
Many millennials disapprove of President Donald Trump's performance, according to a Tuesday poll from Harvard, but they like many of his policies.
Just 42 percent of those voters "strongly approve" of the president's job performance, however, and 51 percent "somewhat approve".
As well as Trump's approval rating dipping, 44% do not believe Trump is keeping his campaign promises, although slightly more people (46%) believe he is sticking to his campaign pledges.
Trump took to Twitter Sunday to bash ABC and NBC polls, calling them fake, and has been a frequent critic of the media. Plenty, according to Wednesday's Elon Poll. But it wasn't that long ago that Trump himself laid out a 28-point "contract with the American voter", outlining his goals for exactly that time period.
Trump's most famous line before the presidency may well have been "you're fired!" A February poll by Gallup found that 62 percent said they thought Trump keeps his promises; that number dropped to 45 percent by April. About half of Republicans surveyed said both his tweets were inappropriate and disagreed that the media are the "enemy of the American people", while more than 90 percent of Democrats disagreed with both statements. "It's not very meaningful", he said.
The White House isn't responding well to its latest legal setback, issuing an angry statement last night that reads like a missive from a far-right blog - note the multiple references to the "unelected judge" and the phrase "blood of dead Americans on their hands" - and that was before Trump himself made a decision to start tweeting this morning.
