Voters Think Media Has Too Much Influence Over Government

Senator John McCain told the U.S. Senate yesterday ahead of the health care vote to tune out media personalities and trust one another instead. Voters think that’s a good idea.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the media has too much power and influence over government decisions. This belief has fluctuated from a high of 67% to a previous low of 54% in surveys since 2010. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on July 20 & 23, 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.
