A surprising new report from Zogby Analytics is very bad news for CNN and the other mainstream media giants.
According to their analysis, the majority of Americans — 57% to be exact — are tired of the media’s nonstop attacks on President Donald Trump, and believe the so-called “Fourth Estate” is unfair to the president.
Unsurprisingly, voters opinion on the issue is largely split along partisan lines. While 68% of Democrats think the mainstream media is fair, a whopping 87% of Republicans are in agreement that the media is biased against Trump.
Most importantly for Trump, the majority of self-described Independents — swing voters that ultimately decide elections — agree with Republicans.
Within the traditional Democratic stronghold subgroups, there’s also a trend that will likely keep liberal leaders awake at night. 51% of African-American voters, who traditionally vote blue, agree with Republicans that the media is biased against the president.
It’s worth noting that Trump won the 2016 election thanks to a larger share of African-American and minority voters than any Republican presidential candidate in 20-years.
And 55% of women, who tend to vote more Democrat than Republican, also said the mainstream news was unfair to the president
This analysis is part of a growth of mainstream media distrust sweeping America.
According to a recent NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll found that “Only 56% of Democrats have a ‘good amount’ or ‘great deal’ trust in the media, while 42% said they don’t have very much or any at all. Republicans expressed even less trust in the Fourth Estate, only 9% saying they trusted it; a stunning 91% said they did not trust the media. Only 28% of Independents said they trust the media; more than two-thirds, 70%, said they did not trust the media,” The Daily Wire reported.
It seems that in the fight between Trump supporters and liberals, it’s Trump that’s winning over the majority of Americans.
That’s bad news for CNN and their pals.
Hard to believe that with 24/7 #Fake News on CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, NYTIMES & WAPO, the Trump base is getting stronger!
