Rasmussen Poll: Americans Give Fox News the Fake News Trophy

A plurality of U.S. citizens in a new poll think that Fox News deserves the first “Fake News Trophy.”

A new poll from the conservative-leaning Rasmussen finds 40 percent of respondents think Fox News should get the Fake News Trophy, which was first suggested by President Trump earlier this week in a tweet.

The second place winner, according to the poll, was CNN, which received 25 percent support.

MSNBC followed CNN with 9 percent, and ABC, CBS and NCB all received less than 5 percent support for the Fake News Trophy.

Views of various networks are split along party lines, the poll finds.

Fifty-three percent of Democrats and 42 percent of voters not affiliated with either major party say Fox News deserves the Fake News Trophy.

But just 24 percent of Republicans feel the same way. Forty percent of Republicans think CNN deserves the award, while only 13 percent of Democrats think the same.

The poll also finds that 65 percent of likely voters think fake news is a big problem. 

The poll was conducted from Nov. 28 to 29 among 1,000 likely voters. The margin of error is 3 percent.

The poll comes after Trump earlier this week suggested the media should compete for a Fake News trophy. But Trump said the competition shouldn’t include Fox, a network he is known to frequently watch.

“We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me),” Trump tweeted.

“They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!”
