Public Trusts Congress, Media Even Less than Trump

Public Trusts Congress, Media Even Less than Trump

A little over six in 10 Americans also say they don't really trust the Trump administration.

Overall, 50% of adults said they trust CNN more than Trump, compared to 43% of adults who said they trust the President more than CNN, according to a poll from Survey Monkey.

While respondents who identified as Democrats were most likely to say that the divide has grown since Trump's election - at 81 percent - the sentiment was strong across party lines. When Trump's trust rating was compared to other media, The Washington Post/New York Times got higher trust rating than the president by 9 percent. Forty-three percent, meanwhile, trust the President more than they do the cable news network.

The poll does have some good news, however. Sixty-nine percent correctly listed 1776, but nineteen percent said they were unsure and eleven percent named a different year.

But Republicans and Democrats in Congress have clashed over a bevy of issues since Trump took office, including immigration, climate change and healthcare, which has been the subject of intense debate for months, as GOP members of Congress push forward with efforts to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

And when respondents were asked to describe Trump's tweets, the majority (47%) of all adults surveyed chose the word "undignified".

Additionally, the Survey Monkey poll analyzed the attitude of USA citizens toward Trump's tweets, of which the majority of adults with 64 percent (89 percent of Democrats and 38 percent of Republicans) expressed their disapproval. Now 69 percent, up from 58 percent, say that the country declared its independence in 1776.

Among political independents, 55 percent said CNN is more trustworthy while 40 percent put more stock in the president than the news network.

"A red flag for Democrats continues to be a perception that Trump is isolating himself from the GOP base with his tweets".

The poll surveyed 4,965 adults online and has an error margin of +/- 2.5 percentage points for its results for all American adults.

"The fight ... between the White House and major media outlets has made the question of truthfulness just as partisan-tinged as health care or other policies", Cohen said.
