(PresidentialInsider.com)- Tucker Carlson has 101,000 reasons to celebrate after Nielsen data shows that in October last year, the news anchor attracted 101,000 viewers who consider themselves Democrats and are aged between 25 and 54. It’s a huge number, particularly for a demographic that should be radically opposed to Tucker, and a sign that people might finally be realizing that CNN and MSNBC are radical, dangerous, and willing to push conspiracy theories.
The data shows Tucker Carlson Tonight, Carlson’s primetime show, pulling in more Democrats between the ages of 25 and 54 than MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, which tied with “The Five” on Fox for second place with roughly 88,000 from this demographic. Sean Hannity pulled in 81,000 young Democrats and Greg Gutfeld also attracted 73,000.
When conservative-leaning shows are pulling in more young Democrat viewers than CNN and MSNBC, it should come as a warning to left-wing networks that they are going too far…but will it?
Or will these networks double down on anti-Trump conspiracy theories and continue smearing Republicans as racists and Nazis?
The new data from Nielsen also shows that conservative-leaning shows are more popular among independent voters. The top five slots for independents in the same age demographic were taken by Fox News shows. Tucker Carlson Tonight, The Five, Hannity, Special Report with Bret Baier, and The Ingraham Angle were all in the top five among independent viewers. The same shows were also in the top five for Republicans.
In other words…legacy left-wing media is dying, and even Democrats no longer care for them.
