New Poll: 43% of Republicans Want to Give Trump the Power to Shut Down Media


Freedom of the press may be guaranteed in the Constitution. But a plurality of Republicans want to give President Trump the authority to close down certain news outlets, according to a new public opinion survey conducted Ipsos and provided exclusively to The Daily Beast. 

The findings present a sobering picture for the fourth estate, with respondents showing diminished trust in the media and increased support for punitive measures against its members. They also illustrate the extent to which Trump’s anti-press drumbeat has shaped public opinion about the role the media plays in covering his administration. 

All told, 43 percent of self-identified Republicans said that they believed “the president should have the authority to close news outlets engaged in bad behavior.” Only 36 percent disagreed with that statement. When asked if Trump should close down specific outlets, including CNN, The Washington Post, and The New York Times, nearly a quarter of Republicans (23%) agreed and 49 percent disagreed. 

Republicans were far more likely to take a negative view of the media. Forty-eight percent of them said they believed “the news media is the enemy of the American people” (just 28 percent disagreed) while nearly four out of every five (79 percent) said that they believed “the mainstream media treats President Trump unfairly.”

That's mentality that allows dictators to come into power. I've said it many times that some of today's Cons don't want to be governed, they want to be ruled.

The 43% that would want something like that to happen have only one thing in mind and that's keeping the truth from the American people... All one has to do is listen to donald at his rallies, he's trying to turn his supporters against the free press, he's doing the exact same thing dictators around the world have tried to do... Yet the Rep.'s are dumb enough to fall for his BS ?? What is this country coming to ??? I can't imagine in less than two years what this man has done, if I didn't see it every day, I'd think I was having a bad dream...

That doesn't make it right. People now also know their right's better than they did in the 1860's. FDR put Japanese Americans in internment camps, that doesn't mean now it would be right if any POTUS put Irish Americans, Italian Americans, etc... etc... in those same kind of camps.
