38 percent of these adults indicated that they “strongly support it.” The authors of this study — Kim Parker, Menasce Horowitz, and Monica Anderson — noted that “sentiment is particularly strong among black Americans, although majorities of white (60%), Hispanic (77%) and Asian (75%) Americans express at least some support.”

However, Republicans and Democrats were starkly divided on the factors motivating the protests. In the Pew report, “Eight-in-ten Democrats and those who lean Democrat claim that ‘anger over Floyd’s death after his arrest by police and tensions between black people and the police have each contributed a great deal to the protests.’”

Republicans held different views on the Floyd protests, which the Pew report noted:

Much smaller majorities of Republicans and Republican leaners say the same (59% say anger over Floyd’s death has contributed a great deal, 57% say the same about tensions between police and black people).

Additionally, the report highlighted another gap between Democrats and Republicans:

The gap is even wider when it comes to longstanding concerns about the treatment of black people in the country. While 84% of Democrats say these concerns have contributed a great deal to the protests, only 45% of Republicans say the same. White and black Democrats are largely in agreement about the extent to which each of these factors has contributed to the protests.

Indeed, there are clear partisan and even racial divides when it comes to Black Lives Matter protests,

Such polarization is indicative of the failures of the 1960s and the many social policies enacted there that have effectively racialized politics and have negatively affected Americans of all backgrounds.

Compound that with mass migration, America is bound to have even greater ethnic tensions in the future.

The voting patterns of such migrants will only further cement these tensions and put certain American freedoms such as free speech and the right to bear arms at risk.

America can avoid the fate of political instability and loss of civil liberties by scaling back the excesses of the Great Society and halting mass migration.

Fox News Ratings Crater, Trailing CNN and MSNBC for First Time in 21 Years

A brutal collapse over the past two-and-a-half months.

Published

on

Recent data from Nielsen shows that Fox News finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in ratings to open the month of January.

This is the first time in twenty-one years that that has happened, according to Daily Wire.

Nielsen’s ratings data shows that CNN finished number one among cable news networks with approximately 2.8 million viewers per day from January 4 through January 10, including 4.2 million in primetime.

MSNBC came in second with 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in primetime. And in third was Fox News with 1.7 million viewers per day and 3.2 million in primetime.

This is tough data for the conservative-leaning network. Over the past couple decades Fox has become accustomed to completely dominating the ratings, oftentimes receiving more viewership than CNN and MSNBC combined. Several factors contribute to the fall of Fox, including but not limited to:

  • The death of Roger Ailes in 2017 and subsequent changes in network leadership
  • Their disastrous Election Night coverage on November 3
  • Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden
  • An ostensible effort to distance themselves from Trump
  • A real or perceived softening of their conservatism in general
  • Trump’s public irritation with the network, to the point of telling people to migrate over to Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN)

Fox News has recently announced lineup changes as well. This is standard practice in the cable news industry and may not have much to do with their suffering ratings, though there’s a likely possibility that it does. Fox will be adding an hour-long opinion show in place of Martha MacCallum’s news show “The Story,” which had fallen behind both CNN and MSNBC’s 7pm timeslots after a stretch of being “comfortably ahead in ratings.” The network will also shuffle some of their daytime lineup.

As Joe Biden works through his first 100 days as president, it will be interesting to see how Fox News continues to perform, not only in comparison with CNN and MSNBC, but also with OANN and Newsmax.
