More than one in three Americans agree with President Donald Trump's assertions that the media is the enemy of the people, according to the latest Suffolk University/USA Today poll.

Further, more than four in 10 agree with the president that the media is biased against him, according to the poll.

The results among registered voters:

  • 34 percent agree media is the enemy of the people.
  • 59 percent disagree.
  • 42 percent say media biased against Trump.
  • 48 percent think media holding Trump accountable.

Another positive for Trump is that 52 percent said they believe the economy is in a state of recovery — up 9 points since December and 18 points since September.

"While that may not seem like a milestone finding, it actually is," wrote David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center for USA Today. "Back in September, only a third of voters chose economic recovery from a list of responses to a question about the state of the economy.

"In December, the number swelled to 43 percent, but it never rose to or above 50 percent, despite repeated claims by economists that the Great Recession ended in March 2009."

Further, 55 percent of those surveyed said the president has shown leadership in his first 40 days in office.

Though Trump has an approval rating of 47 percent, according to the poll, voters are nearly dead even on approval of his policies.

Those results:

  • 46.3 percent approve of his polices.
  • 45.8 percent disapprove of his policies.
  • 7.9 percent are undecided.

The nationwide survey of 1,000 voters was conducted March 1-5 using live telephone interviews of households where respondents indicated they were registered to vote. The margin of error is +/-3 percentage points at a 95 percent level of confidence.
