April 3, 2017


media fairness

Our March 2017 poll asked NC voters about the media’s treatment of President Trump.

We asked: Do you believe the media have been fair in their coverage of President Trump?


41%     Yes

52%     No

7%       Don’t Know/ Unsure

“While only 49 percent say they have a favorable view of Trump, 52 percent feel he is not being treated fairly by the media,” Civitas President Francis De Luca said. “Only 41 percent feel he has. We believe there is an undercurrent of support for President Trump reflected in this number that we might not see in the rest of the poll.”
