    Quinnipiac University poll, released on Wednesday, asked participants if they trust media or Trump "tell you the truth about important issues." The survey said that 52% of voters trust the media, with only 37% saying they trusted Trump more. Sorry Trump supporters, I know the media is your favorite whipping boy, but that's beginning to wear thin with the public. Trump and the GOP can't deliver on their promises, so they blame the media for their failures. - Pathetic

    It appears the reporting on the poll of 1,323 people is as incomplete and full of holes as the OP of this thread.

    Here's for the thumb happy:
    Among Democrat voters, 86% said they were more inclined to believe the media than the president, while 78% of Republican voters said that Trump tells them the truth, not the media, according to the poll.

    and
    College-educated white voters and non-college educated white voters, for example, are divided on the trust level question — with 55% of the former trusting the media, compared to 55% of the latter believing Trump more, according to the poll.

    and
    61% of people disapprove the way Trump talks about the media, while 50% of voters disapprove the media's coverage on Trump.


    But again, it's a poll and we all have seen how outrageously wrong the MSM has handled polls in the past.
