Forty-one percent of registered voters believe their local news can be trusted more than the national news. That figure comes from an August 2017 study by Morning Consult/Politico, conducted for the News Media Alliance, which polled a national sample of 1,997 registered voters. Of those voters, 68 percent said they trust the news, with 41 percent finding the local news most trustworthy and 27 percent saying they trust the national news more.
