President Donald Trump’s penchant for occasionally saying things that are demonstrably untrue has eroded trust in the president, according to a poll conducted by Marist College for National Public Radio, which showed that only 37% of Americans trust the Trump administration.
But here’s the thing: Americans trust Congress and the news media even less than they trust Trump. According to the polls, only 30% of adults said they trust the media either “a good amount” or “a great deal.”
Meanwhile, 46 percent of Americans say they don’t have very much trust in Congress, while 22 percent say they don’t have any trust in the legislative branch. In fact, just 6 percent of Americans have a great deal of trust in Congress, while 23 percent say they have a good amount of trust in it.
