The American public thinks the media wants Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to win by an almost 10-to-1 margin, according to a new poll.
The Hill reports:
“The Suffolk University/USA Today poll released Friday asks, “Who do you think the media, including major newspapers and TV stations, would like to see elected president: Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump?”
Of the 1,000 adults surveyed, 75.9 percent answered Clinton, while just 7.9 percent picked Trump, the Republican nominee. Just more than 16 percent of respondents chose either “neither” or “undecided.”
The Suffolk University/USA Today poll comes on the heels of an Associated Press/GkF poll last week showing that 56 percent of likely voters, including 87 percent of his supporters, believe the media is biased against Trump.
In that poll, 51 percent of Clinton supporters said the media is biased in her favor, while just 8 percent said it’s biased against her.
Trump has repeatedly complained the media is against him.
“It’s the greatest pile-on in American history,” Trump told ABC’s “Good Morning America” Thursday.
“I go to rallies and they’re starting to hate the media because they see it’s all a big lie. Not all, but a lot of it’s a big lie.”
Americans no longer trust the mainstream media, anyway–because of its lack of objectivity and poor journalistic standards.
A great example of poor standards– is what we have just learned this past week about CNN’s own Donna Brazile feeding Hillary Clinton a debate question in the presidential debate against Donald Trump.
The fact is, Liberal reporters outnumber Conservatives 4:1. Even the so called, “Independent” reporters tend to lean toward the political left. Unfortunately, many of these reporters can no longer produce fact-based stories without injecting their own opinions. It wouldn’t be so bad if they would just acknowledge their own bias, but they almost never do. Yet, their bias is blatantly obvious to rest of us.
Therefore, when it comes to the 2016 election, it’s no wonder the American public doesn’t trust the media.
