Is the sky blue? Depends on what Donald Trump says
"Historically, Democrats' patriotism appears to have been susceptible to considerations such as which party occupies the White House and how the U.S.is faring internationally, while Republicans' patriotism has been more consistent over time", said Gallup Poll managing editor Jeffrey M. Jones.
Townhall - one of a handful of media outlets that reports its news from a conservative standpoint that often favors the Republican Party - notes that findings indicate that more than half of all American adults believe the news media is "often inaccurate" when reporting on political matters.
When the survey of 503 voters interviewed last week was broken down along party lines, 89 percent of Democrats said they disapproved of Trump's style and 81 percent said they disapproved of his policy directions.
When told Trump was critical of American exceptionalism, the notion that the United States holds a special place in history and in world affairs, and that it's insulting to people from other countries, only 32 percent of Democrats agreed, while 46 percent of Republicans backed the president.
In addition to saying the news media favors one party over the other, Americans also say that news organizations are often wrong in their reporting. "Just 27 percent now say the media favors neither major party". During those years, the gap was smaller than it is today.
2 killed in Stockholm as truck rams into pedestrians
Senior police officer Mats Lofving said: "We don't know whether this incident is isolated or whether we can expect more". Photos show a beer truck sticking out of the department store. "I turned around and saw a big truck coming towards me".
Fifty-five percent said that news organizations' stories are "often inaccurate" while only 36 percent said news organizations generally get the facts straight.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, President Donald Trump and the GOP often said Hillary Clinton received favorable - even preferential - news coverage, while Democrats lamented that the media aired Trump's speeches and events uninterrupted. "But at several other points before 2000, Americans were either more likely to say the media got the facts straight or closely divided in their opinions on the matter".
Just how many reporters were sampled in this survey? "Republicans are mostly responsible for the increase in perceptions of partisan media bias since 2003".
The survey was taken between March 30 and April 3, and has a margin of error of 4.5 percent.
