A new Wason Center poll finds that 86% of Republican voters and 61% of independent voters say major American news organizations publish fake news stories for political purposes.
Said pollster Rachel Bitecofer: “President Trump’s rhetoric appears to be having a massive impact on voter confidence in the media. Although confidence in media has been declining for the past few decades, this represents a sharp decline in trust, which carries serious implications.”
Also interesting: “Political polarization in the American electorate runs deep. 71% of Republicans say the views of Democrats are a threat to the country; 55% of Democrats say the same about Republicans.”Save to Favorites
