Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice Viewers Are Actually Democrats
Graph from Atlantic Monthly
Donald Trump is creating significant waves both within the Democrats and the Republican parties with his will I or won’t I run for President media campaign.
However this week he did score a win, by making President Obama present his birth certificate to the nation in a press conference. In my opinion this just gave Donald Trump legitimacy as a candidate.
Now I don’t like The Donald’s politics, but I am hoping he will run, and with Sarah Palin as vice president. Both reality TV stars, what fun I will have.
Anyway one of the things that has been revealed in an Atlantic Monthly is his quest to be the “leader of the free world” may be alienating his viewers, who are liberal democrats.
The article states:
One reason Trump’s audience is abandoning him may be that, according to demographic research of primetime television viewers provided exclusively to The Atlantic by National Media Inc., a firm that places political ads on television, the audience for “Celebrity Apprentice” is among the most liberal in primetime television (see graphic above). Rather than add viewers, Trump foolishly appears to be driving them away.“I was surprised to find that the ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ was so liberal, because the audience for [another reality show] ‘Survivor’ is fairly Republican,” said Will Feltus, the senior vice president for research at National Media, Inc. “It’s a weird show because it’s not a regular TV series. But based on MRI ratings, it is clearly a Democratic audience.”
I am not sure what I find more disturbing the reality that Trump could become the next President of the USA or that the Survivor audience are Republicans.
