57 percent say media coverage of Trump is too negative
A majority of Americans feel mainstream media coverage of President Trump is "too negative" according to a poll released Wednesday.The media acts like it is on a mission from God to destroy Trump and they are not likely to be swayed by the negative reaction of the public to their bias. The hatred is too deep with these people to see how self-destructive their actions are.
A Zogby Analytics poll showed that 57 percent of likely voters found the coverage of the president to be too negative, while 44 percent disagreed.
The poll is predictably split along party lines, with 87 percent of Republican voters saying the coverage is too negative and just 32 percent of Democrats agreeing.
Among independent voters, 54 percent believe coverage of Trump is too negative.
Fifty-five percent women and 51 percent of African-Americans, two groups that don't normally give high marks to Trump, also told pollsters that coverage is too negative.
The Zogby poll comes on the heels of an NPR-PBS Newshour-Marist poll this month that found that 91 percent of Republicans and 93 percent of Trump supporters don't trust the media.
