American voters, for the most part, trust the news media over President Donald Trump to tell the truth about important issues, a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows.
According to the poll, conducted by phone from Sept. 6-9 of 1,038 voters nationwide:
- Voters say they trust the media over Trump by 54-30 percent.
- Republicans trust Trump over the media by 72-12 percent.
- White voters with no college degree trust the president more by 45-43 percent.
Meanwhile, most voters do not agree with Trump's assessment that the media is the "enemy of the people," with 69 percent of those surveyed saying the media is an important part of democracy and 21 percent agreeing with the enemy comment.
Republicans, however, said by 47-31 percent that they consider the media an enemy, the poll said.
The poll carried a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.
