Does the media make up fake news about Trump?

President Donald Trump calls on a reporter during a news conference with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras left in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington Tuesday Oct. 17 2017 Politico Poll: 46 Percent Believe Media Fabricates Stories About Trump

A new survey showed that almost half of Americans believed that the media fabricated stories about President Donald Trump.

However, the poll's sample of 1,010 adults skewed in favor of Democrats, under representing registered GOP voters by about 7 percent.

Among party lines, 76 percent of Republican voters believe the media puts out untrue stories about the president, while only 11 percent think the media is honest in its coverage of Trump.

Unsurprisingly, many more Republican voters are critical of the media, with three-quarters believing the media makes up news about Trump.

37 percent said that is not the case, while 17 percent said they were undecided on the matter.

Trump has made "fake news" one of his key issues, accusing the bulk of major media outlets, print and broadcast alike, of telling tall tales.

On Tuesday, the USA president renewed his attacks on the media during a round of interviews with talk radio shows.

Additionally, 80 percent of Trump voters believe that to be true. Meanwhile, 46 percent of Republicans said the government should have that power, while 33 percent said they should not. On Tuesday he took to Twitter to call them all "fiction writers".

"Voters, particularly Trump supporters, have become disenchanted with the national media", Kyle Dropp, chief research officer and co-founder of Morning Consult, said in the survey. "That being said, many are still not willing to let the federal government censor the media".

The poll was conducted via landline and cell phone from October 12-15 among 1,010 respondents with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent. "The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 2 percentage points".
