    That’s some surge for cable news. Just saw some clips online showing that Trump had an interview with Hannity. Oh and Trump tweeted out that he would be on Hannity yesterday too.

      Trump Bump


      • Destiny

        Even then it wasn’t much of a bump but compared to recent days it was a decent surge for Fox News. It was only two weeks ago that Hannity recieved 4.84 million viewers with a 0.50 demo with its riot/protests coverage? I don’t watch Fox News so I dont know but it was around that time George Floyd was murdered.

        That said I know the growing anger of how Covid-19 was handled & Trumps reaction to BLM hasn’t helped his approval ratings. Though in absolute fairness I think all accross the world sitting governments where Covid has hit hard have mostly negative ratings from voters over how they have handled.

        Republicans shouldn’t be too worried as the only poll that matters is the one in November.

    Politics have replaced the wrestling fans here and I never thought how sweet that would be. That wrestling wave was too long, even if for only a few months.


  3. Sоme truly marvelous work on behalf of the owner of this web sіte, perfectly outstanding articles.
