NPR Poll: More Americans trust Trump administration than Congress or mainstream media by  for The Daily Sheeple

A new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll released Thursday shows that more Americans trust the Trump administration than the media and Congress as a whole.

“The poll of 1,123 Americans was conducted with live telephone Oct. 3 through Oct. 8, 2019,” according to NPR and asked a series of questions related to President Donald J. Trump’s presidency. When asked, “How much do you trust Congress: A great deal, a good amount, not very much, not at all?” 66 percent of Americans said they trust Congress “not very much/not at all.” 31 percent said they trusted Congress a “great deal/a good amount.”

When asked the same question regarding trust about the media, 69 percent said they trusted our news “not very much/not at all.” 29 percent of Americans said they trusted the media.

For the Trump administration, these numbers faired better. 40 percent of Americans said they trusted the 45th president’s executive branch. 59 percent said they distrusted the administration.

As pointed out by political strategist Ryan Girdusky, this poll also shows a rising number of Americans, 50 percent compared to 47 percent in September, say that President Trump has strengthened America’s economy.
