CNN Poll: Trump's Approval Rating Stays at 37 Percent

  • Poll 46 percent think the news media fabricates stories about Trump

On Wednesday night he tweeted, quoting a poll that Fox News reported on - but was actually published by Politico and Morning Consult - that found "46 percent of Americans think the media is inventing stories about Trump and his administration", Trump wrote.

Continuing with his unhidden distaste for the media, President Donald Trump says majority of the stories about his administration are fake and void of evidence.

Yet despite Trump's constant rhetorical assault on the media, trust in some news organizations has risen during the president's time in office.

Among Republican voters, 76 percent believe the media invents stories about the Trump administration, and 11 do not think so.

Thirty-seven percent of Americans approve of Donald Trump's job performance as president, while 57 percent disapprove, according to a new CNN poll.




The Politico poll, published Wednesday, found that almost 50 percent of Americans do, in fact, think that the media fabricates stories about Trump and his administration, while 37 percent don't.

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

In response, Trump called for media network's broadcasting licenses to be reviewed, a call that has been rejected by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

The poll, conducted October 12-15, surveyed 1,010 people.

According to the poll, just 28 percent said the government should be able to revoke broadcast licenses of major news organizations if it says they are fabricating news stories about a president, while 51 percent think the government should not have that power. The margin of error is +/- 2 percentage points.
