The new Gallup national survey of Americans released on Wednesday showed a sharp decline in views of the media, with Americans now saying they are “more likely to trust news outlets that report on social and economic issues.”
The Gallup poll, which is conducted every two months, also showed that the percentage of Americans who believe “news outlets that do not favor political correctness are more liberal” has fallen from 48% to 42%.
But the percentage who are “not sure” has remained steady at 50%.
The percentage of adults who say they trust “social media” to report on issues has also decreased from 42% to 34%.
The percentage of those who are not sure about this increased from 44% to 46%.
The Gallup survey was conducted May 25-28 among 1,000 adults.
Gallup, the national polling company, has tracked views of news organizations since 1945.
Its data shows that Americans have grown increasingly distrustful of mainstream media outlets in recent years.
Gallups poll of views of media outlets comes after news organizations have had a rocky relationship with Trump.
In March, Trump claimed that “CNN is not the same CNN anymore.”
The president said that the network was a “total disgrace” and had been replaced by a network of “totally biased people.”
Trump’s comments caused CNN to pull its entire news coverage of the 2016 presidential election and cut its budget.
The network said it would cut about 300 news reporters and analysts, as well as several news executives, in a move that would have cut its staff by about half.
In an interview with The Washington Post’s editorial board, Trump said that CNN’s ratings were down because of the president’s tweets.
The president did not name any of the outlets CNN said were responsible for his comments.CNN reported that Trump’s comments hurt its ratings because they distracted viewers from the news of the day.
Trump’s tweets, however, were the reason CNN was down by 6% overall and by 1% among women.
