Over three surveys between 2010 and 2015, views of the news media among Democrats and Republicans followed the same trajectory, with Democrats less apt to see the media as having a negative effect on the way things were going in the U.S., but those in both parties shifting slightly more negative over time.
While 72% of Democrats believe that colleges and universities have a positive impact on the country, only 36% of Republicans feel the same way.
The survey, which looked at the partisan differences over the impact of major institutions on the country (from June 8-18), found that Republican attitudes on the effect of colleges and universities have dramatically changed over a relatively short period of time.
A majority of all Republicans-75 percent of those who identify as conservative Republicans and Republican-leaning and 68 percent of those who are moderate and liberal Republicans-said religious institutions have a positive impact.
And more than half (52 percent) of Republicans aged 18 to 29 view colleges positively. Almost two-thirds (65 percent) of conservative Republicans say colleges and universities are taking the country in the wrong direction, while only 43 percent of moderate and liberal Republicans think the institutions have a negative effect on the country.
The poll also assessed how Americans view the effect of the media, churches, banks and labor unions on the country.
Last year, only 33 percent of Democrats said the national news media had a positive effect on the way things are going in the country. Results among the full sample have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2.3 percentage points.
