A new poll from NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist shows that Americans trust President Trump much more than they trust the media. The poll was conducted June 21-25.
While 30 percent of adults said they trusted the media, 37 percent said they trusted the Trump administration. While this is historically low trustworthiness for a presidency, its also very low for the media.
Trump has made it a special focus of his to bash the mainstream media that he believes is unfairly biased against him while giving Democrats and leftists a free pass.
Since he has been elected, members of the national press have attempted to find out if President Trump’s base is cracking. So far, the base is is showing little to no proof of that, while trust in the press though continues to slip.
