New Poll: Majority Says the Media Is Biased Against Trump
Donald Trump has complained for the longest time that the media is biased against him, but a new poll shows that there are a lot of people who agree with him on that.
Now, just to be clear, this same poll from Quinnipiac [PDF] shows Hillary Clinton leading by 7 in a 4-way race and by 6 in a one-to-one matchup with Trump.
But a total of 55 percent of those polled believe the media’s biased against the Republican nominee (88 percent of Republicans and 20 percent of Democrats included).
58 percent of whites polled say it’s biased against Trump, compared to 45 percent of non-whites.
But Trump does pretty badly on the actual question “Would you say that Donald Trump has a sense of decency or not?”
Clinton’s metrics on that score aren’t exactly excellent––55 say yes, 42 say no––but only 36 percent of those polled believe Trump has a sense of decency, compared to 59 percent who say no.
His worst numbers on this come from women and non-whites––only 28 percent of both groups say he’s decent.
