Fifty-one percent of Republican voters agree that media outlets are the “enemy of the people,” according to a poll released Thursday.

The Quinnipiac University poll reveled 66 percent of U.S. voters say they believe the news media, while 22 percent say the media is the “enemy of the people.” However, of Republicans, 51 percent believe the news media is the “enemy of the people” compared to 37 percent who trust them.

The news comes as President Donald Trump has continued to blast the media, giving them the nickname “fake news.” In an interview Thursday, Trump said he was fed up with the unfair coverage of him by cable news and said he has stopped watching all of the major news networks.
