Poll asks voters if media treats Trump fairly

It turns out that voters are split on whether President Trump is being treated fairly by the media.

Trump said, "a few days ago I called the fake news the enemy of the people and they are."

A new Politico/Morning Consult Poll says that 43 percent of voters believe Trump is being treated fairly while 42 percent say his treatment by the media has been unfair.

As expected, the views varied depending on the party, with 76 percent of republicans believing Trump's getting a bad rap and 75 percent of democrats believing the media's treatment is reasonable.

One thing both sides can agree on is checking the news, with 35 percent of voters saying they check the news multiple times a day.

Another 35 percent say they check once or twice a day.

Meanwhile, Trump has been busy on a nine-day foreign trip meeting with world leaders.
