The mainstream media, as expected, has been relentlessly hammering Donald Trump at every turn in an attempt to delegitimize his presidency altogether.

They don’t seem to have learned their lesson from the 2016 election cycle even though the American people made it clear at the ballot box that they weren’t buying into the spin.

Now, a recent poll is sending a devastating message to the media about how their Trump smearing is working thus far…

From Weasel Zippers via MRC:

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.

Will the mainstream media finally get the message?
