Voter distrust in the political news they see every day is continuing to grow
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of Likely U.S. Voters now say they do not trust the political news they are getting, up from last June’s previous high of 46%. Only 36% did not trust political news in January of 2017, but that number was in the 40s from 2014 through 2016.
Just 32% do trust the political news they are getting, down slightly from surveys since 2016. Another 15% are not sure.
The national survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on April 18-19, 2018 by Rasmussen Reports.
