U.S. adults trust President Trump’s White House more than the national political media, according to a poll released Friday.
Thirty-seven percent trust the White House versus 29 percent who favor the political media in the Morning Consult survey.
Thirty-four percent are unsure or have no opinion.
Pollsters found that nearly half believe the national political media is harder on Trump than past presidential administrations.
Forty-eight percent said America’s political journalists are tougher on Trump, compared with 16 percent who say they are easier.
Twenty-three percent say they are “about the same,” while 13 percent are uncertain or lack an opinion.
Friday’s results found a slight majority, 51 percent, say the national political media is “out of touch with everyday Americans.”
Twenty-eight percent said it “understands the issues everyday Americans are facing,” and 21 percent are undecided or have no assessment.
