Do Americans think the media is too tough on Trump or not hard enough? Take the poll . . .

Americans are divided over the media’s treatment of President Trump.

A new Gallup poll shows that 36% of Americans think the press is too tough on Trump, while 28% think it’s not tough enough.

Not surprisingly, the poll results were sharply divided along party lines. About 74% of Republicans saying press coverage has been too tough, while only 9% of Democrats agree.
