Most voters polled think President Obama has received better treatment from the media than presumptive GOP challenger Mitt Romney, and they expect that biased coverage to continue, according to a new poll by Rasmussen Reports.
The Rasmussen national telephone survey finds that 59 percent of likely U.S. voters believe Obama received the best treatment from the media so far.
Eighteen percent think his Republican challenger has gotten better treated.
Twenty-three percent aren’t sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 likely voters was done Aug. 8-9 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
