The last time Gallup surveyed Americans on this issue was back in February 2003, when just as many respondents thought the news media favored a particular party over the other - a common trend that was witnessed at the turn of the century and several years before that.
Elway said the poll indicates "energy among the Trump opposition".
According to the poll, 62 percent of Americans believe that the media favors one party over the other, while only 27 percent believe it favors neither party.
Nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of those who believe the media tilts toward a political party say they favor the Democrats.
Democrats seem to be more galvanized in their dislike of Trump than Republicans are in supporting him, with 81 percent of Democrats "strongly disapproving" of the president's performance and only 54 percent of Republicans "strongly approving" of it Cook stated, citing a SurveyMonkey survey. By comparison, 44% of Democrats now say the media plays favorites, unchanged from the 44% who said so in 2003.
Richard goes 8 innings, Padres beat Dodgers 4-0
NOTES: Joc Pederson's grand slam was the first by a Dodger since Eric Karros hit one on April 3, 2000, in Montreal. Grandal followed Pederson's slam in the third inning with a solo homer into the same lower right-field seats.
For a certain kind of Republican, President Donald Trump can simply do no wrong, while for some Democrats, the man can do absolutely nothing right.
Looking at all Americans - regardless of their political persuasion - Gallup found that most believe that the Democratic Party is significantly favored by the new media.
The belief that the media favors Democrats stems mostly from Republicans and may be the result of a continued animus between the two parties, as well as a tendency among conservatives to accuse the media of a liberal bias. It then pointed out that, according to a recent Gallup survey, Trump's approval rating among Republicans is at 85 percent, but he is has a treacherous 33 percent rating among independents.
Gallup also found that 55 percent of Americans say news stories are "often inaccurate", while 36 percent say that news organizations generally report stories correctly. Overall, Americans' belief that the media favors one party over the other is the highest it has been in more than 20 years. When "government official" was replaced with "Donald Trump", suddenly, only 23 percent of Republicans said it should be forbidden, while 70 percent claimed to not care.
