Why the attacks on Trump have not resonated

NY Times:

‘You Focus on the Good’: Women Who Voted for Trump

Even when offended, some looked past Mr. Trump’s flaws to issues like jobs and immigration. Distrust of Hillary Clinton and a liking for Ivanka Trump also helped.
I suspect that there is also deep distrust of the media and its liberal bias.  When media operatives openly talk about there being no need to be fair to Trump and their reporting reflects it, then they lose credibility with news consumers.  And, the distrust of Hillary Clinton was already apparent in polling well before the Wikileaks material was published.

Because of the distrust in the objectivity of the media, all the negative attacks on Trump just confirm their belief that the media should not be trusted.  So far, I have seen little reporting that would even attempt to rebuild that trust.
