I am not a statistician, so please don’t write. However, I notice a couple of interesting things. The majority of Republicans trust Fox news, (big surprise), but CNN is only able to garner a plurality of Democrats, who universally distrust Fox, (again, big surprise). Republicans trust CNN are more than they trust network news, while, with the exception of CNN, Democrats trust Network news more than cable news.
It would appear that Republicans are more open to hearing different news sources than are Democrats.
My conclusion: Republicans and Democrats see the world very differently. I told you I wasn’t a statistician.
