A new poll shows that when it comes out of the gate, fake news is more common than fake news.
The Pew Research Center found that only 24% of people believe the U.S. is safer now than it was a year ago.
The survey, conducted by Quinnipiac University, found that 38% believe the country is safer, down from 56% in July.
But a majority of people (57%) still believe that fake news should be considered a “threat” to the nation.
That’s up from 51% in the July poll.
“The public is concerned that fake stories, both news and propaganda, are creating a climate of fear and mistrust that can be dangerous to democracy,” said Dr. Andrew Zimbalist, director of the Pew Research Institute.
“Americans are particularly concerned about fake news, especially when it is spreading via social media, in the form of news and misinformation.
People have grown more wary about sharing news and information with friends and family.
They are also increasingly skeptical about the legitimacy of news reporting.”
The survey found that Americans also are concerned about the spread of “fake news,” which includes conspiracy theories and fake news stories that are posted online.
More than a third of Americans said they have read fake news online at least once.
Nearly half of Americans (47%) said they had read a story posted online by a “fake” news outlet.
The poll found that fake media was the second most-reported threat to the country (behind the threat of climate change).
Americans also said they’re concerned about threats to their civil liberties, including online speech and privacy.
Almost half (47%, up from 47% in June) said they were concerned about people sharing information online that they might not like.
Americans also expressed concern about a potential threat to their economy, with 36% saying they were worried that fake information will create a “fraudulent or harmful” business.
Americans were most concerned about how fake news will affect their ability to obtain jobs (53%, up 6 points from July), with 35% saying the threat is greatest in “high-tech, high-skilled” jobs.
More people are concerned with the impact that fake articles will have on the environment (48%, up 8 points from June), and the economy (47%), with 36 percent saying the issue is the most important.
“Fake news, even when it’s not true, can make the world a more dangerous place for people and the environment,” said Zimball.
“When it comes down to it, fake is a term that’s hard to define.
We just need to keep in mind that fake is often not real news.”
Polling has also found that a majority (57%), or 63%, of Americans believe that the president is “not honest” and that his actions are “not in the best interests of the country.”
The poll, conducted June 17-20, found more than twice as many Americans (57% and 55%, respectively) as Democrats (5%) believe that Trump is not honest.
The numbers for the president and vice president were similar in June.
In the survey, 52% of respondents said that the vice president is not “a truthful or trustworthy representative of the United States of America.”
A similar poll from April 2017 found that 53% of Americans say the president does not “tell the truth.”
That poll also found nearly twice as much Americans (62%) as Democrats think that the administration is “getting along pretty well” with the media.
The question on the president’s honesty also has the highest percentages of Americans saying that he or she is “a liar.”
The question was asked about Trump’s remarks during the inauguration.
Seventy-two percent of Americans surveyed said Trump is “telling the truth,” while only 28% said he is not.
“We know that many Americans believe he is truthful,” Zimbart said.
“And we know that this question has been asked in the past and that the answer is a resounding yes.
So, the question that we ask is, is this president telling the truth?
If he is telling the right truth, then yes.
We also need to ask, what is the truth about Trump that is not being told in the public eye? “
But that doesn’t mean that he’s doing something wrong.
We also need to ask, what is the truth about Trump that is not being told in the public eye?
And if the answer to that question is ‘none of the above,’ then the question is not a good one to answer,” Zomball added.
A majority of Americans also believe that there is a need to have a “fact-based debate” about “fake information” that is published on the internet.
Ninety-three percent of respondents (89%) said the need for a fact-based discussion about the dangers of fake news exists.
That number also jumps to 86% if you include “fake content” that isn’t actually news.
