Trump Touts Recent Poll to Say His ‘Fake News’ Message Is ‘Finally Sinking Through’

President Trump took to Twitter this morning to tout a recent poll and declare that his message about the fake news is “finally sinking through”:

Trump is referring to a Politico/Morning Consult poll out a few days ago with these findings:

Nearly half of voters, 46 percent, believe the news media fabricate news stories about President Donald Trump and his administration, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.

Just 37 percent of voters think the media do not fabricate stories, the poll shows, while the remaining 17 percent are undecided.

More than three-quarters of Republican voters, 76 percent, think the news media invent stories about Trump and his administration, compared with only 11 percent who don’t think so. Among Democrats, one-in-five think the media make up stories, but a 65 percent majority think they do not. Forty-four percent of independent voters think the media make up stories about Trump, and 31 percent think they do not.

And in case you’re wondering, yes, this poll was mentioned on Fox & Friends this morning.

Trump also continued to go take shots at Congresswoman Frederica Wilson:
