Nearly three-quarters of Republicans say that the media does not understand “people like them,” according to Pew research released Friday. Those surveyed felt this way regardless of age, education level, and sex, and regardless of how much news they read.

For Democrats, meanwhile, their feelings on whether the news media understands people like them varied based on the amount of news they consumed:

About a quarter of Democrats who are very interested in the news feel misunderstood (27 percent), compared with about four-in-ten of the somewhat interested (39 percent) and roughly half of those not interested (52 percent). Still, Democrats at all levels of news interest are much less likely than Republicans to feel misunderstood by the news media.

Pew surveyed 5,035 U.S. adults over two weeks in February and March 2018.
