Americans think the corporate media will have an easy time with Biden


According to a new survey by Rasmussen Reports, a majority of US voters believe the media has been soft on President Joe Biden and “less aggressive toward Biden than it was in responding to former President Donald Trump.” .

Of 1,000 likely US voters polled between February 16 and February 19-20, 51% say the corporate media is not aggressive toward Biden. Only 24% believe the media questions Biden more aggressively than Trump, and 21% think the treatment is about the same. The margin of sampling error is ±3 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.

Overall, 56% of likely voters say media bias is getting worse, while only 16% say the problem is getting better. Divided by political affiliation, 30% of Democrats believe media bias is getting better, compared to 10% of Republicans and 6% of unaffiliated voters. By contrast, 73% of GOP voters view media neutrality as bad, as do 38% of Democrats and 59% of unaffiliated voters, according to the poll.

More Republicans (71%) and the United States (51%) than Democrats (33%) think the media is less aggressive toward Biden than Trump.

According to the poll, “Thirty-two percent (32%) of Democrats think the media is aggressively questioning Biden, but only 19% of Republicans and 21% of unaffiliated voters agree.”

Voters under the age of 40 are less likely than older voters to believe there is a problem with media bias. Young voters also believe the media is aggressive when interviewing Biden. Voters earning more than $200,000 a year also think the media’s impartiality will improve.

“Those making $30,000 to $50,000 a year think the media has been less aggressive in questioning Biden compared to how they have treated Trump,” the poll said. .

According to the poll, Biden’s most confident supporters are “most confident that the media will treat him worse than Trump.” 42 percent of voters who “strongly approve” of Biden’s performance say the media is more aggressive toward him than Trump.

“In contrast, 86 percent of those who strongly disapprove of Biden’s performance believe that the media will question Biden more aggressively than Trump.”
