Poll: Americans Trust Trump Administration More Than Media

From Truth Revolt, by Mark Tapson

The news for the news media is all bad.

The news for the news media is all bad.

An Emerson College poll found that 49 percent of U.S. voters believe that the Donald Trump administration is “truthful,” while only 39 percent feel that way about the news media, reports The Wrap. Not only that, but 53 percent of those surveyed described the media as “untruthful.”

The nationwide poll, conducted February 5-6 and released on Tuesday, also showed that 48 percent of registered voters approve of the job that President Trump is doing, as opposed to 47 percent who disapprove.

The poll shows a deep partisan divide, noting that 89 percent of Republicans approve of the President while 81 percent of Democrats disapprove. According to the poll, Trump’s “failure to pass the 50 percent threshold” for approval is due to his 52 percent disapproval rating among independents.

Also, 89 percent of Republicans call the Trump administration truthful, while 77 percent of Democrats find it untruthful.

Conversely, 69 percent of Democrats find the news media truthful (which is actually quite low considering the news media’s almost overwhelming leftward tilt), while 91 percent of Republicans consider them untruthful. Again, independents split the difference — 42 percent call the Trump administration untruthful and 45 percent say the news media is.

America doesn’t trust you, mainstream media. Now would be a good time to clean up your act.
