Despite the new administration’s insistence of the term “fake news,” a new poll shows that most Americans still trust the media.
A new poll released on Wednesday, proves that most Americans cite the media as more credible over President Donald Trump.
The phrase “fake news” has become increasingly popular as repeatedly stated by the new administration, including the 45th President himself labeling prominent media outlets as “the enemy of the American People!”
The results from the recent study, which was conducted by Quinnipiac University, shows that 52 percent of voters trust the media more than they trust Trump. Only 37 percent said they trusted Trump more.
Amongst Democrats, 86 percent said they trusted the media more than the President. For Republican voters, 78 percent said they trusted Trump more than the media, while just 13 percent said they trusted the media more.

The poll also showed that more than half of the participants believe that the President is doing more to divide the nation than to unite it.
The Connecticut-based University conducted the poll by surveying 1,323 voters from across the nation. Tim Malloy, Assistant Director of the Quinnipiac University Poll said, “This is a terrible survey one month in.”
“President Donald Trump’s popularity is sinking like a rock,” he continued.
