(Nielsen ratings updated Dec. 1, 2016.)
Why is anyone shocked Trump won? Weekly television Nielsen ratings report who’s watching TV News at any time. Trump knew it. People watch what they like. Fox News has been the top rated network across all cable networks for the last 14 weeks. It even beat out ESPN. During all of November Fox held 14 of the 15 top Cable TV programs. Every night Fox News averaged 3.3 million, according to Nielsen, up 71% compared to the same time last year. Fox was reporting on Trump almost full time while CNN was bashing (and continues to bash) Trump full time. As a result CNN viewership has dropped below 1.5 million per night, barely beating out MSNBC at 1.3 million, according to Nielsen. CNN has lost all credibility. Its new name is CNN: Closed Now for News.
Daily polls taken by calling people at home between 9 and 5 were not productive for this Presidential election because more people still work in America than not. Going to construction sites and polling workers there, illegal or legal, would have indicated Trump would win. Trump talks rough like a construction worker because he is one. Americans love construction workers. They build buildings. They create jobs. They generate money. Illegally in the USA or not, workers want to work. Plumbers do more for American homeowners than Congress. Trump knows this instinctively.
The New York Times is owned by Carlos Slim, the richest man in the world who lives in Mexico. Slim takes in millions of dollars annually from illegals and legal workers from Mexico in the USA who call home on the cellular phones of the company he owns in Mexico. Plus, Slim makes more millions when they transfer money from the USA to their families down to Mexico where he owns the banks there too. NY Times reporters are encouraged to bring down Trump because Trump is bad for Slim’s business interests in America. Slim lives off Mexican workers in the USA, illegal or not. Hello? Is anyone paying attention?
Carlos Slim and his family in Mexico City.
Talk Radio won this election for Trump. Millions hear daily news in their cars and trucks driving to and from work every day….the buzz word here is ‘work.’ The fact Trump wins and Chris Plante is now going national tells you something. Trump won because of Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Chris Plante. They all speak for working America. Period.
