MSNBC and CNN have seen a drastic drop in ratings since President Donald Trump lost the election.
Fox has lost viewers, too, but nothing like the left-leaning networks. CNN Tonight with Don Lemon is down 32% from November 30 to March 5.
Overall, CNN’s primetime shows lost the most viewers.
Prime Demo Rating:
(Also, has anyone noticed that left-leaning outlets do well with Republican presidents and right-leaning outlets do well with Democrat presidents?)
Trump is no longer in office. Trump is no longer on Twitter. Trump is no longer on Facebook.
Yes, Trump releases statements. Those are not as effective as his tweets or anything he would release as a president.
Before Trump, MSNBC & CNN were struggling to have any audience at all. Trump single-handedly saved them all. With him gone, the predictable collapse of their audience is now underway, especially among the young demographic. Trump was a sugar high that temporarily jolted a corpse. pic.twitter.com/7o87zeOYTT

I’m sure Lemon, Cooper, and Cuomo still rag on Trump. It does not matter much to people because censorship took Trump offline, and he does not hold office.
You lose your focal point, you’re going to have a bad time. Trump Derangement Syndrome does not work as well when Trump is not the president.
Out of sight, out of mind.
Trump was loud and energized. He drew in people. President Barack Obama was brand new and a relatively unknown politician who (we cannot say a true unknown because he was a senator) came out and won the election.
President Joe Biden is…an old white male. He is just…there. Literally just there because he has not held a press conference, and his handlers do not allow him to answer questions at events.
The Democrats cannot impeach Trump. The tension over the Capitol Hill riots is over. We have an old white male in the White House surrounded by staff from the Obama administration.
The facts about Biden probably contribute to Fox losing viewers, especially Sean Hannity. He never kept his relationship with Trump a secret. Tucker Carlson remains popular, but he is considered controversial, so the left has grabbed him since they do not have Trump.
You know CNN and MSNBC want Trump to run in 2024. I’m sure Fox would love it, too, especially Hannity.DONATE
