Donald Trump has had too much media coverage, seventy-five percent of Americans declare

Three out of every four Americans believe the media has given too much coverage to Donald Trump, a new survey from the Pew Research Center says.

Asked how news organizations have been covering the presidential candidates, seventy-five percent of respondents said too much coverage had been given to Trump. Only four percent said that the reality television star had been given too little.

The finding comes two weeks after a NY Times study found that Trump had earned near to $2 billion worth of free media attention during the two thousand sixteen campaign, eclipsing the total cost of media attention given to all of his Republican competitors combined.

Taken together, the surveys allow tough proof for what most Americans -- and the other Republican candidates -- already know: Trump has been given a vastly disproportional quantity of media coverage.

Such findings have fueled a strong debate among political observers and media analysts over the media'south role in Trump'south stunning political rise. Even President Obama, earlier this week, faulted the media for contributing to Trump'south rise.

Those who believe the media is to blame for Trump'south success, love USC Annenberg Prof Ev Boyle, point to the overwhelming quantity of coverage. Those who get a more nuanced view, such as Politico'south Jack Shafer and NY Magazine'south Frank Rich, note that the majority of that coverage has been negative.

"Instead of trying to create Donald Trump, the media seem to have nearly unified in an attempt to demolish him," Shafer wrote earlier this month.

There is number disagreement, however, that Trump has been the dominant legend of the two thousand sixteen presidential cycle.

Meanwhile, a majority of those surveyed by Pew (fifty-four%) believe that Senator Ted Cruz has received just the right quantity of coverage, and fifty-seven percent believe that Gov John Kasich has received too little.
