Poll: 46% think media invent stories about Trump
That 46% is largely divided on partisan lines — 76% of Republican voters think media make up stories about Trump while only one in five Democrat voters think that, a Politico and Morning Consult poll shows. Those who strongly approve of Trump's job performance are very likely (85%) to think the media makes up stories.
- Those who don't believe the media makes up stories: 11% of Republican voters and 65% of Democrats. That's for a total of 37% of voters who think the media do not invent stories about Trump.
