A majority of registered voters don't trust the information they get from President Donald Trump and his administration, a new poll found.

The McClatchy-Marist survey, released Tuesday, found that 40 percent said they could trust "not at all" that they were getting "accurate and factual information" from the White House; 17 percent responded "not very much" in answer to their trust level.

On the other hand, 18 percent of registered voters trust Trump and his administration's information "a great deal," and 23 percent trust it "a good amount," the survey found.

In other findings, the survey found that among registered voters:

  • 65 percent find Trump’s Twitter usage "reckless and distracting," while 26 percent feel it's "effective and informative."
  • 45 percent say the administration is "too tough" on the media, while 22 percent says it acts "about right," and 27 percent say it's "not tough enough."
  • Conversely, 38 percent said the media's being "too tough" on Trump and his administration, 25 percent call the treatment "about right," and 31 percent believe the media treatment is "not tough enough."

The poll's margin of error is 3.3 percentage points.
