Poll: Just 12% Trump voters call NYT trustworthy, 14% for Wash Post
President Trump's assault on the mainstream media is hitting home with his supporters, a huge majority of which agree that the biggest outlets just aren't trustworthy -- by a mile.
Trump supporters interviewed for the latest Economist/YouGov survey said they don't trust the Washington Post or New York Times.
Just 12 percent said the Times is trustworthy. Another 64 percent called it untrustworthy.
For the Post, 14 percent said they trust it, and 54 percent said they don't.
By comparison, the "general public" called both papers trustworthy.
Trump supporters favor Fox News and Breitbart News as far more trustworthy, said the survey.
Trump has long called the news from the papers "fake," though he still gives them exclusive interviews and top aides talk to the outlets often.
