PRESIDENT DONALD J. Trump’s administration is more trusted among U.S. voters than the media, according to a new poll.

The poll, conducted by Emerson College, found that the administration is considered truthful by a slim majority, 49 percent, versus 48 percent of registered voters who said it was untruthful. By way of comparison, only 39 percent of registered voters view the media as truthful, with 53 percent saying the news media is dishonest.

Partisanship plays a role.
