Poll: Republicans Watch Fox; Democrats, CNN


A poll conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press has confirmed what was already readily apparent -- that Fox News attracts mostly Republicans or conservatives, while CNN appeals mostly to Democrats. According to the survey, 35 percent of Fox News viewers identified themselves as Republicans, while 21 percent said they were Democrats. For CNN, the numbers split: 28 percent Democrats and 19 percent Republicans. The survey noted that when Fox News Channel came on the air in 1996, CNN's audience was more Republican than Democratic.

2. Confucius says Dems better stop watching CNN
With all the whoring it does for the right wing, why are we helping CNN at all?

3. I shut them off except
for Lou Dobbs when I remember to turn the tv on. One of the time I wrote to them my question was why they were trying to attract a conservative audience when the Fox viewers were faithful and would never turn to CNN. We are their 'base' viewers and they are sending us away. Very bad business decision on their part.
