Nearly half in poll say they struggle to determine if information is true

Forty-seven percent of those surveyed said they believe it’s difficult to determine if the information they encounter is correct, while 31 percent said it is easy to do so. Respondents widely agreed that the best way to determine information’s veracity is to consider how it was gathered and if it is based on data.

The poll also found that nearly two-thirds of Americans say they often come across information that is one-sided and about 60 percent say they consistently see clashing reports from different outlets about the same set of facts.

While many Americans agree it is difficult to determine if the information they find is correct, the poll showed partisan divides in the sources they trust.
