Over half US voters think media biased in favor of Clinton: Gallup

Above half of registered American voters, or 52 percent, believe US media is biased in favor of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, according to a newly-released Gallup poll.

The findings are based on Gallup Daily tracking data collected Oct. 27-28, 2016. Americans' perception of media bias is stronger in this election than during the 2004 presidential campaign, the only other time Gallup has asked the question.

In October 2004, 45 percent of registered voters believed there was no media bias - seven percentage points higher than today. Further, there was a bit more parity in perceptions of which party benefited from media favoritism, with 35 percent saying it was biased in favor of Democratic candidate John Kerry and 16 percent in favor of his Republican rival George W. Bush, Gallup said.
