Confidence in Newspapers Rises

The public's confidence in newspapers is on the rise, according a Gallup survey. The percentage of Americans who say they have "quite a lot" or a "great deal" of confidence in newspapers climbed to 27 percent in 2017, up from 20 percent last year. What's behind the growing confidence? Democrats. Here is the percentage of people with "quite a lot" or a "great deal" of confidence in newspapers by political affiliation and how confidence changed between 2016 and 2017...

2017: 46%
2016: 28%
Change: +18 percentage points

2017: 13%
2016: 16%
Change: –3 percentage points

"These party differences may represent a backlash against President Donald Trump's proclamation that the media are "the enemy of the people," says Gallup.
