Poll: Is Trump watching too much cable news?
A Public Policy Polling survey has 62 percent of us thinking the president should limit his cable news viewing to less than an hour a day, and 82 percent thinking he should watch under two hours a day.
Only 6 percent think it’s a good idea for the leader of the free world to be glued to the TV more than two hours a day watching cable news.
Maybe less TV would help his perspective on the world on, say, whether or not the news media is the enemy of the people. Only 35 percent of us think like Trump that the news media is the enemy of the people, to 53 percent who disagree.
Funny, how perspective works – by a 48-44 margin, Americans think it’s actually Trump who is the enemy of the American people.
And based on what Nielsen has to say, most Americans aren’t watching even an hour of cable news, so there is that.
