Poll finds more adults in U.S. trust CNN compared to Donald Trump

Posted July 06, 2017

A recent poll has revealed that more people now trust CNN, which Trump has repeatedly attacked, over the president, who may be failing to convince Americans that mainstream media outlets are purveyors of "fake news" who are out to get him and his administration.

The survey also found that a majority of Americans have trust in the intelligence community and the judicial system, but far fewer hold trust in a wide array of other institutions.

Among Democrats, only 5% said they trust Trump more compared to the 91% who said they trusted CNN more.

Independents also sided with the Democrats overall, with CNN coming out 15 points ahead among those surveyed.

Of Republicans, 89% said they trusted Trump more, and 9% said they trusted CNN more.
