Poll: Who’s Worse – Used Car Salesmen Or ‘Journalists?’

on Feb 20, 2017 at 3:37 PM in Politics, Media, North America

It seems today’s media is having ‘trust issues’. Imagine that!

In a Fox News poll that had their respondents choose between Trump and the Press for who they considered more trustworthy, more chose Trump… and that is DESPITE (or maybe because of?) the endless drip-drip-drip of negative news stories they’ve thrown at him.

Instead of the either or between Trump and the press, let’s have some fun and ask the same question differently.

Of the two professions that get called out for their — let’s call it ‘shading’ of the truth — which one do YOU trust more?


Or Used Car Salesmen?

‘But Wait! There’s more!’

You probably want more detail about the Trump vs. Journalist results.

Here they are.

First the dry one:

Roughly 45 percent of the poll’s 1,013 registered voters surveyed between Feb. 11 to Feb. 13 said they trust Trump’s administration more than reporters covering the president’s administration to “tell the public the truth.” Approximately 42 percent of voters sided with the reporters over the president, while 10 percent chose neither, two percent chose both, and one percent said they “don’t know.”

Now the INTERESTING stat that came out:

…eight percent of Democrats and 11 percent of those who identify as liberals actually trust the Trump administration more than the reporters covering it to relay the truth to them more accurately. Approximately 52 percent of independents and 34 percent of those who identify as moderates said they trusted the president’s administration more. Even seven percent of those who said they voted for former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton chose the Trump administration over reporters

Now it’s your turn.
