Voters Don’t Trust Anonymous Sources

President Trump’s deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein warned the American public late last week against putting much stock in news stories that cite anonymous officials. Voters seem to agree.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 20% of Likely U.S. Voters believe most news stories that are based on anonymous sources. Fifty-two percent (52%) don’t believe stories from anonymous sources, but 27% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The national survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on June 18-19, 2017 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
