A significant finding in a new Emerson College poll shows Americans feel the Trump administration is more truthful than the news media.

According to the poll, “The Trump administration is considered truthful by 49% of voters, to 48% of voters who consider it untruthful. Meanwhile, the news media is considered untruthful by a 53%-majority of registered voters, to only 39% who find them truthful (a 14-point gap).”

As one would imagine, there is a political split in these numbers. Emerson College Polling indicates 89% of Republicans find the Trump administration truthful, versus 77% of Democrats who find the administration untruthful.

When it comes to media, 69% of Democrats find the news media truthful, while a whopping 91% of Republicans consider them untruthful. Independents don’t indicate much trust for either the Trump administration or the media - but trust the Trump administration more by 3% points.

“Independents consider both untruthful – the Trump administration by a margin of 42%/52% and the news media by a margin of 45%/47%,” according to the poll.
