IBD Editorial: IBD/TIPP Poll: Public Turned Off By Media's Relentlessly Negative Coverage Of Trump

The mainstream media's open hostility to President Trump may be starting to backfire, according to the latest IBD/TIPP poll.

The poll found that 55% of the public says they've grown "weary from the media's persistently negative coverage of President Trump." A roughly equal share (54%) also believe that the news media "has assumed the role of the opposition party, constantly opposing the president and his policies at every turn."

Not surprisingly, Republicans overwhelmingly hold these views (88% say they're tired of the relentless negativity), but the media's attacks are also turning off independents (55% of whom say they're weary of the negative coverage) and moderates (54% of whom are weary). Most also believe that the press has assumed the role of the opposition party.

WNU Editor: I am not sure about this poll. Are people tired of the negative coverage of President Trump .... maybe .... but they are still reading and watching the news when it comes to President Trump. As to what is my take on this "negative coverage" .... I tell my American friends who are not happy with the coverage that they should not complain .... the Canadian press coverage of President Trump where I live is 99% negative. On a side note .... since the election of President Trump the readership of this blog has doubled .... and my posts of President Trump are the most popular.
