More Winning from President Trump. Poll results show Americans trust Trump more than they trust the liberal media when it comes to telling the truth. Additionally, they say the national media is out of touch with the American people.
Per the Morning Consult:
As political journalists prepare to gather at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner on Saturday to celebrate their work, a new Morning Consult poll is likely to make many of them cringe.
In the new poll, roughly half (51 percent) of Americans said the national political media “is out of touch with everyday Americans,” compared with 28 percent who said it “understand the issues everyday Americans are facing.”
President Donald Trump, a frequent public antagonist of the press and the first president in 36 years to skip the confab, is also slightly more trusted than the national political media. Thirty-seven percent of Americans said they trusted Trump’s White House to tell the truth, while 29 percent opted for the media.
Americans Trust Trump More Than Liberal Media
While this may come as a surprise to some, there are many that are not surprised with this at all. Trump has built a strong relationship with his base and they are very trusting of him. It's a very different approach than the one used by Barack Obama.
