Use the following to answer the questions below:

In a survey conducted by the Gallup organization September 6-9, 2012, 1,017 adults were asked, "In general, how much trust and confidence do you have in the mass media—such as newspapers, TV, and radio—when it comes to reporting the news fully, accurately, and fairly?" 81 said that they had a "great deal" of confidence, 325 said they had a "fair amount" of confidence, 397 said they had "not very much" confidence, and 214 said they had "no confidence at all."


In the article, they discuss the association between political party and opinion about the media ("positive" = great deal/fair amount of confidence and "negative" = not very much confidence/none at all). The results, as percentages, are displayed in the side-by-side bar charts. Describe the association between political party and opinion about the media. Use the bar chart to estimate the proportion of individuals with positive opinions about the media for each political party.

A bar-graph compares the association between the political party and opinion about the media for negative and positive responses. The horizontal axis is labeled, Percent within levels of party and has the following markings: Democrat, Independent, and Republican, in the order from left to right. The vertical axis is labeled, percent and ranges from 0 to 80 in increments of 10. There is an adjoining bar above each marking on the horizontal axis which represents the opinion of the party, where the first bar represents, negative opinion of the party and the second bar represents, positive opinion of the party. The data from the graph are as follows: Democrat: negative, 43 percent; positive, 58 percent; Independent: negative, 70 percent; positive, 30 percent; and Republican: negative, 73 percent; positive, 27percent. All values are approximate.
