Ordinary Americans are not buying the “Russian meddling” nonsense, with 57 percent agreeing that “the media has prematurely declared President Trump and his allies guilty of collusion with Russia” despite a lack of evidence. Only 39 percent disagreed.
Some 83 percent of Republicans believed the media had displayed bias, while only 32 percent of Democrats believed the same. Some 62 percent of independents saw media bias in the coverage of the Russia investigation.
Almost two-thirds of the youngest segment of voters, in the 18 to 24 year-old age group, said the media had essentially treated Trump and his campaign officials as guilty without providing evidence of Russian influence.
Most Americans do not believe Russia influenced the outcome of the election, despite the mainstream media’s saturation coverage, with some 52 percent of respondents dismissing the idea.
Almost half of Americans called the Russia investigation a full-on “witch hunt”.
The poll also found 65 percent of Americans saying it was “premature” to talk about impeachment of president Trump while only 32 percent said it was “appropriate”.
The poll was taken May 30 to June 6, before former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony which largely imploded the “Russian conspiracy” narrative.
