Megyn Kelly infuriated conservative patriots last summer when she launched a feud with the future GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. Since then, she has been shamelessly pandering to liberals as reports have poured in that she is planning to leave Fox to join a “more mainstream” network.
Now, this betrayal to conservatives has come back to bite Kelly in a big way.
According to American News, Megyn Kelly’s show The Kelly File has been in a fierce rating competition with Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC program The Rachel Maddow Show. Kelly and Maddow have been particularly tight in the coveted 25-54 age demographic, where Maddow almost tied Kelly in total viewership last Wednesday. This was the third time this month that Maddow either surpassed or tied Kelly in viewership.
“Maddow also beat Kelly File in the demo on Monday, August 15 (428-416) and on Thursday, August 4 (493-485),” reported Breitbart.
While this comes as Kelly is on vacation, her show still destroyed Maddow’s in the ratings the last time she went on a trip.
Though Fox News is still America’s most watched cable news network, MSNBC has taken a significant jump. Much of this has been credited to viewers choosing to support Maddow over Kelly.
Many experts have attributed Kelly’s ratings slump to conservatives losing faith in her following her attacks on Trump. What do you think about this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
