A recent Rasmussen poll asked voters what they thought of the current state of the news media in our government.
Rasmussen Poll: Majority of Likely Voters Say ‘News Media Have Too Much Power and Influence Over Government Decisions’ https://t.co/PAPWN7xtri

A large majority of voters, 54%, responded saying the media has “too much influence over government decisions,” and they are concerned the problem will only get worse under a Biden administration.
Close to a third of voters believe the media has “the right amount of power” in our government, while only 10% think news outlets don’t hold enough influence. For reference the poll was answered by 1,000 likely voters in the U.S. in early January.
