Poll: Just 41 Percent Have 'Great Deal of Trust' in Media

Just 41 percent of Americans have a “great deal” or “fair amount” of trust in the mass media, including newspapers, televisions and radio, according to a Gallup Poll released Thursday.

More Democrats trust the mass media than Republicans, 69 to 15 percent, compared to 36 percent of Independents.

The 41 percent is a four-point dip since last year.

A record-low 32 percent was measured in 2016 – Gallup has been recording results since 1972.  

Just 13 percent of Americans have a great deal of trust in the mass media, compared with 28 percent who have a fair amount, 30 percent who say not very much and 28 percent who say none at all.

“Americans' trust in the media has been eroding over time, but in the current highly polarized climate, the views of political partisans have become increasingly divergent,” writes Gallup. “President Donald Trump's description of the media as "the enemy of the people" has undoubtedly colored the views of all Americans.”

The Gallup Poll was conducted Sept. 3-15.
