Rasmussen: 69% of Independent Voters Are ‘Angry’ at Media; 61% of All U.S. Voters Angry at Media

More U.S. voters (including 69% of independents) are angry at the media than are angry at either President Donald Trump or his political opponents, survey results released by Rasmussen Reports on Wednesday show.

“How angry are you at the media?”:

  • Angry: 61% (of which, 40% are Very Angry)
  • Not Angry: 38% (of which, 19% are Not at All Angry)

The 61% expressing anger at the media is up from 53% in June of last year, but off from its high of 66% in June of 2010.

Voters’ anger at the media is also greater than their anger at either President Donald Trump (53%) or his political opponents (49%) and far more Republicans (83%) than Democrats (33%) say they’re angry at the media.

More than two-thirds (69%) of unaffiliated voters say they’re angry at the media.

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on September 29-30, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
