The Quinnipiac University poll asked people if the media or the President tells the truth about important issues. The poll found that only 52% of people say they trust the media while only 37% said they trust President Trump.
The poll shows a steep party divide. Among Democrats, 86% said they trusted the media more than the president. But among Republican voters, the balance is flipped: 78% said they trusted Trump more than the media, while just 13% said they trusted the media more.
The bottom line is we all feel like we're being lied to we're just not sure by whom. The only place where most everyone agrees is a total of 90% of American voters say it is "very important" or "somewhat important" "that the news media hold public officials accountable."
