I was thinking about this today and I have a theory on this. I don't think Trump really seriously believes that a cease and desist order will work, nor do I think he disagrees with the polls. What is really going on here is this about sending a message to his base that he will challenge the media on stuff like this. All this is about is getting the base fired up. This is not a serious attempt to silence CNN. (That's just my theory)
Trump is just pushing his propaganda to keep his flock huddled in his media orbit so they don't question the lies that are told daily on right wing news sources. Trump will point to it as fighting the mainstream media, but he also wants them not to believe the polls. If the polls stay this bad, he may lose needed energy should the economy stay in the gutter as the Fed pointed to today.
They have a propaganda apparatus worthy of Joe Stalin and his henchmen. The main difference is we have laws to keep the law and order man from throwing legitimate protesters into reeducation centers which they would if they could.
