Poll: Americans Trust Trump Administration More Than News Media

Nothing happens for decades then …. decades happen in a day. We are witnessing a sea change, a seismic shift in the order of our world. Long overdue, I’d say.

Americans Trust Trump Administration More Than News Media in New Poll

Only 39 percent call media “truthful” in Emerson College survey, compared to 49 percent for new White House

Brian Flood The Wrap, February 9, 2017:

An Emerson College poll found that 49 percent of U.S. voters believe that the Trump administration is “truthful,” while only 39 percent feel that way about the news media. Worse, for the so-called “opposition party,” 53 percent of those surveyed described the media as “untruthful.”

The poll, released on Tuesday, also showed that Americans are divided on Trump’s performance so far — 48 percent of registered voters approve of the job that Trump is doing, compared to 47 percent who disapprove.

It a statistic that should not come as a surprise, the poll notes that 89 percent of Republicans approve of Trump, while 81 percent of Democrats disapprove. According to the poll, Trump’s “failure to pass the 50 percent threshold” for approval is because of his standing among independents, a group in which 52 percent disapprove.

Trump and his surrogates have been combative with the media, often referring to CNN as “fake news,” and bashing the industry in general, labeling it the “opposition party.”

The partisan divide is clear throughout the poll’s findings, with 89 percent of Republicans calling the Trump administration truthful, while 77 percent of Democrats find the administration untruthful.

Conversely, 69 percent of Democrats find the news media truthful, while 91 percent of Republicans consider them untruthful. Independents split the difference — 42 percent call the Trump administration untruthful and 45 percent say and the news media is.

    The lies of Marxist media lead in Germany to an onholding decline of sales numbers for their liefilled “products”.
    Previously the German “Spiegel” brought a Cover “Cartoon” which Shows Donald in the pose of ISIS Fighters Holding high the head of the freedom statue in one Hand, with a blood droping knife in the other Hand, as if Donald has “killed” freedom.
    The case is the contrary: He defends the US against the most freedom cutting and freedom destroying and most brutal ideology on the Surface of the planet.

      Trump is decapitating the freedom-statue, just so nobody’s notices it maybe not even he himself.

        If Mo actually said it, it’s ’cause he stole it from a whole slew of ancients …

        Of course, he invented his whole cult from an Arabic moon god and bastardized versions of the Old and New Testaments.

    Eight long years of Barrack Obama’s subversive/anti-American policies were so devastating that it shook most people (decent, honest, law abiding) and caused them to awaken from their complacency. Obama brought us to the very edge of the cliff (and of course the fallout from his destructive work will haunt us for years to come.) Trump was the right man at the right time to step in and stop this BS. We as a people better never take our hands off the plow ever again!

    Then if most do not trust the media, then give Trump your support

    That Emerson College poll is simply a mirror image of the vote totals from the Presidential election and will change once the snowflakes are able to snap out of their fantasy world and their sense of denial. Trump represents the new version of all those participation trophies they have been accumulating. Time to wake up and smell the dog sh*t.

    I receive several useful and informative tweets almost daily from Trump, Pence, or both. You mean, you don’t?

      I notice him whining and lying. If you think that’s informative, you can’t think, period.

        Oh, great another dime a dozen pea brained troll who didn’t have their ass whipped enough times during the formative years.

    The more the media complains and lies about Trump the stronger he becomes…

      I am hoping for a SCANDAL to break out that exposes them like nothing ever before, even in comparison to the wikileaks thing in 2016.

      The illegal voting issue by illegals deserves investigation because liberals get really worried and angry when it’s even brought up. Conservatives need to go on OFFENSE!

      • Kenek

        Did you ever wonder why all the dead voters are liberals?

    Been watching the 2016 election coverage on CNN and have to admit that most CNN journalists were rather biased against Trump. I thought that after Trump took the oath of office CNN would moderate it’s tone. The opposite happened. Today, most CNN journalists are positively spitting venom like enraged puff adders against the President.

      That’s because 99% of those working in the media are full-on members of the Left. Their minds do not work properly.

        Liberalism is proven to be a mental disorder.

    • TD

      The difference between the CONSERVATIVE Media and the LIBERAL Media (both are biased):
      At least, the Conservative media does NOT blame America for 9/11; and it does NOT blame Israel! It blames RADICAL ISLAM!

      (This is now the standard answer I give when asked that question).

      • TD

        Remember when liberal Bill Maher called the 9/11 hi-jackers courageous?
        (he even said it’s the US that’s the coward, only weeks after 9/11).

        I share this video so conservatives and independents can go on OFFENSE and remind liberals why they have no credibility. Share, re-share this video all over the net when appropriate.

    Liberals have a mental disorder, therefore they don’t know the meaning of truth.

  • Craig

    Well, duh.

    What the “statistics” of the Emerson poll show is a nation horribly divided. Independents apparently stand for nothing. One should poll, or at least inquire, if independents know what a constitutional republican form of government is, and what makes it unique. It is well known that progressives don’t care about a constitutional republic.

    A nation this terribly divided in the face of determined enemies and without a moral foundation can’t stand.

  • Dan Knight

    Not surprising. Anti-Americans hate Trump. Pro-Americans support Trump. And the rest vacillate – taking the last opinion they heard as the gospel …

    I stopped watching MSM years ago because I’m old enough to remember when the news was reported without bias, opinion, and an agenda. I remember when opinion based reports were labeled as such and not passed off as fact based news! Seeing how horribly they have treated president Trump and supporters since before the election, with such vitriol and hate is outrageous and mind blowing. It becomes more apparent daily that there are some seriously deluded, mentally unbalanced individuals on the left and many of them work in the media!

    The fact that they LIE daily and then call their detractors liars for daring to call them out on their lies and for speaking the truth is beyond infuriating. It’s like they think that because they say something that means it’s 100% truth and is to be accepted as such or else those who don’t believe their lies are awful, horrible people and are to be considered liars themselves. I sincerely hope they all go out of business. They probably will seeing how they’ve doubled down on their lies and hate speech and it’s even turning people off who don’t even support President Trump. What really amazes me though is how they support and make excuses for the Antifa (and other) rioters violent actions and assaults on white people for possibly being President Trump’s supporters! Why these dangerous, crazy, morons, especially those in Berkeley… aren’t being prosecuted is the question of the century because had this kind of stuff happened towards Obama those people would be in jail! They should also be investigating why the police there stood back and watched a lot of it and if the Mayor told them to do it he should be charged and SUED (by those who were injured) as well. There’s multiple media personalities and celebrities who are calling for the present administration’s overthrow and some have even mentioned assassination of OUR PRESIDENT as a viable option to get rid of him!! I don’t understand how and why they’re getting away with it! I mean, what the media, the Soros/Clinton machine, Obama and his heathen “agitators” and many so called “celebrities” are doing is criminal and should be treated as such. They should be charged with treason and sedition at the least!!
