A recent Suffolk University/USA Today Poll has revealed that 46 percent of likely voters believe that the news media is the “primary threat that might try to change the election results.”
That staggering conclusion was considered the highest threat to this election cycle – the next group suspected of tampering with elections was the national political establishment at 21 percent, while only 13 percent were undecided.
The Washington Examiner Reports:
“The poll of 1,000 likely voters was taken between Oct. 20 and Oct. 24 and followed the release of private emails by the hacking group WikiLeaks that revealed cozy relationships between some prominent media stars and the Clinton campaign. The WikiLeaks dump also discovered Donna Brazile, the interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, forwarded a debate question to Clinton that was later asked at a CNN Democratic town hall. Brazile at the time was a CNN contributor.
The poll found 39 percent of likely voters believe the media is coordinating coverage with individual political campaigns, while 48 percent said the media is reporting “completely of its own accord.”
The Gallup Poll has found trust in the media to have sunk to an historic low. A September Gallup survey found just 32 percent of American adults saying they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media,” a number that has dropped eight percentage points from last year.”
