Donald Trump has been claiming the media spreads, what he calls, “fake news” and has slammed certain news organizations for being biased. Despite this, majority of voters in a latest poll conducted by a Hamden, Connecticut university said they trust the media than the president.

Quinnipiac University released poll results Tuesday showing that 53 percent of respondents said they have confidence in news organizations than on Trump in telling “you the truth about important issues.”

The survey also found 58 percent voters disagreed with Trump’s claims that the media is “the enemy of the American people.” Of these, 86 percent voters were Democrats and 60 percent independent voters. However, 81 percent of Republican voters agreed with Trump’s views about the media.

However, while 53 percent of voters still disapproved of the way news outlets have covered Trump so far, 60 percent of respondents disapprove of the way Trump talks about the media, the poll results showed. Also, 89 percent of those polled maintained it is "very important" or "somewhat important" for the media to hold public officials accountable.

The survey was carried out from March 2 to March 6 and 1,283 people participated in it. The margin of error of the poll is 2.7 percentage points.

Trump is known for his criticism against certain news outlets and has accused them of being biased against him. Last month, the 70-year-old held press conference, in which he blasted certain section of the media and called them "enemy of the American people."

"That's how I won [2016 presidential election], I won with news conference and probably speeches. I certainly didn't win by people, [pointing at reporters] listening to you people, that's for sure. But I'm having a good time. Tomorrow they will say, 'Donald Trump rants and raves at the press.' I'm not ranting and raving, I'm just telling you, you know, you're dishonest people. But, but, I'm not ranting and raving. I love this, I'm having a good time doing it. But tomorrow the headlines are going to be, 'Donald Trump rants and raves.' I'm not ranting and raving," the president said at the time.

However, he praised Fox News show “Fox & Friends” for its “honest” coverage on him.

"I have to say, ‘Fox & Friends’ in the morning, they're very honorable people," Trump said. "They're very — not because they're good, because they hit me also when I do something wrong. But they have the most honest morning show. That's all I can say. It's the most honest."
