A new poll shows that more Americans trust President Trump and his administration that trust Congress.
According to Town Hall:
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.
This poll is in stark contrast to new polls that show growing support for impeachment. These differing numbers will make November 2020 even more interesting should Congressional Democrats decide to impeach President Trump.
