Most Americans say U.S. politics is less civil under Trump, poll finds

President Donald Trump has a trust deficit with Americans with about six in 10 saying they don't trust his administration

A new SurveyMonkey poll shows shocking data that reveals President Donald Trump's Republican supporters are living in a totally different reality than everyday Americans.

In a dig against its own relevance, the Marist/NPR poll found Americans on both sides of the political spectrum have little trust in opinion polling. Twenty-five percent of Republicans say they don't have very much trust in the intelligence community, with 11 percent saying they don't have any trust in them. When Marist conducted a similar poll in 2011, 42 percent of respondents could not name the year the US broke away from Great Britain.

According to the results of a new NPR/ PBS NewsHour/ Marist poll (.pdf) released earlier this week, 77 percent of Americans correctly cited Great Britain as the nation from which the United States declared independence. During the speech, he said "the fake media is trying to silence us".

Even as Trump has, at times, attacked the CIA along with the FBI investigation into his campaign aides' possible collusion with Russian Federation during the election, 40 percent of Republicans say they have a good amount of trust in the intelligence community, with 19 percent saying they have a great deal of trust in them. While 37 percent of all Americans have no trust at all for the media, 59 percent of individuals who identify as Republicans say they do not trust the media compared to only 16 percent of self-identified Democrats.

As for the media, 30 percent said that they trust them while 68 percent said they do not.

The poll is a complete reversal of Republican views in Democrat Barack Obama's presidency. As for those who do not lean toward any of the two parties, the figures resembled the overall vote, with 55 percent of respondents picking CNN's side. Two percent said that they were unsure. Eight years ago, 21 percent of Americans in that poll thought civility and the tone of discourse in the country had improved.

The online poll, conducted between June 29 and July 3, with close to 5,000 adult respondents, gave a good feedback on what people think about Trump's tweeting habits. Ninety-one percent of Democrats find CNN to be more truthful than Trump.
