According to the latest Gallup poll, Americans over all have very little confidence in the media. That's not very surprising, but the political break downs explain a lot about why Obama's poll numbers aren't worse.

I find it very weird that 18-29 year olds have so much confidence in newspapers. It's very rare for anyone that age to even read one.

this is consistent with many people

those least likely to pay taxes tend to be the ones who most support tax increases
