A poll conducted by Emerson College shows voters see the Trump administration as more truthful than media.
A majority of registered voters, 53 percent, said the media are untruthful, while 39 percent said they were truthful.
When it came to the Trump administration, 49 percent said they were truthful, while 48 percent said they were untruthful.
“The partisan split on this topic is clear,” said Professor Spencer Kimball in a press release on Tuesday:
89 percent of Republicans find the Trump administration truthful, versus 77 percent of Democrats who find the administration untruthful. Conversely, 69 percent of Democrats find the news media truthful, while a whopping 91 percent of Republicans consider them untruthful. Independents consider both untruthful – the Trump administration by a margin of 42 percent/52 percent and the news media by a margin of 45 percent/47 percent.
