NEW YORK (Reuters) - Americans are increasingly confident in the news media and less so in President Donald Trump’s administration after a tumultuous year in U.S. politics that tested the public’s trust in both institutions, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Tuesday.

The poll of more than 14,300 people found that the percentage of adults who said they had a “great deal” or “some” confidence in the press rose to 48 percent in September from 39 percent last November. Earlier this year, Trump branded the entire industry as the “enemy of the American people.”

The percentage of those who said they had “hardly any” confidence in the press dropped to 45 percent from 51 percent over the same period.

Confidence in Trump’s administration moved in the opposite direction.

Wow. These polls numbers are huge. They could be off by a bunch and the Republican party still looks terrible. Note the margin of error is three points.

Registered voters are increasingly turning away from the Republican Party and looking to the Democrats to solve America's biggest problems, according to a new poll.

A Suffolk University-USA Today survey released Thursday shows that 62 percent of respondents now have an unfavorable view of the GOP, a 7-point jump in unpopularity for the party since the same poll in June. Just under half, 48 percent, feel the same way about the Democrats.

The poll found that 43 percent of voters look to congressional Democrats to protect families when it comes to health care, compared to 15 percent who trust President Trump on health care and less than 10 percent who say the Republican Party should lead the way.

“The Republican Party is in freefall,” said Suffolk University poll director David Paleologos. “In March the GOP had a 48 percent unfavorable rating, in June the negative swelled to 55 percent. Today the GOP unfavorable is 62 percent. What’s next?”

When it comes to the president, more than half of respondents say Trump has not delivered on his promises. Nearly 57 percent of respondents say they want to see a Congress elected in 2018 that will stand up against Trump, while just 33 percent want Congress to cooperate with Trump and his legislative agenda.

Trump's unfavorable rating has climbed 2 points, to 57 percent, since the last poll. Just over a third, 34 percent of respondents, say they view Trump and his administration favorably.

Almost two-thirds of the country, 64 percent, say America is on the wrong track. That number has jumped 8 percent since June.

The Suffolk University-USA Today poll was conducted from Sept. 27 through Oct. 1 and contacted 1,000 likely voters by telephone. The margin of error is 3 percentage points.

One of Mulvaney’s biggest challenges for the rest of the year will be working with Congress on passing legislation on tax reform, a long-time Republican goal and one that the Trump administration is hoping to make one of their signature accomplishments.

A former congressman from South Carolina, Mulvaney spent his years on Capitol Hill as a staunch deficit hawk who cared deeply about the nation’s national debt.

But on Sunday, he admitted that solving those issues won’t be quite as easy as he once hoped.

“I've come to the realization that Washington is not going to solve the debt problem, the deficit problem, through spending,” he said. “I had come to Washington in 2011 and had hoped that would be the case, that we had a spending problem and not a revenue problem.” He blamed a lack of political will on Capitol Hill, saying, “I just do’t think there's much appetite to cut our way to balance.”

The budget chief also conceded that the tax proposal backed by the White House and Republicans in Congress will likely create an increase in the deficit that they hope will be overcome with economic growth.

“We are willing to accept short-term increases in deficits in order to get the type of tax reform that we need to get back to that healthy American economy,” he said. “Remember, if you're 30 years old, you've never had a job as an adult in this country with a healthy American economy and we're trying to get back to that.”
