CNN suffered a devastating loss of primetime viewers during the week of February 27 while 45th President and leading 2024 presidential candidate Donald Trump is experiencing massive gains in his poll numbers and ratings.
According to a new report, CNN dropped 71 percent in total prime-time viewers, 83 percent among viewers aged 25 to 54 in primetime viewership, and 62 percent in total day viewers.
CNN isn’t the only anti-Trump “news” outlet suffering failing ratings, either. The Washington Post, nicknamed “The Washington Compost” by Trump, has lost a devastating 500,000 subscribers since Trump left office and is considering selling part of their tech business.
According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, the far-left newspaper’s subscriber count dropped from three million in 2021 to now two and a half million, a 20 percent decline.
This must be music to President Trump’s ears. In 2017, Trump said, “Newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there. Because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes.”
Meanwhile, Trump’s speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) outperformed all other cable news rankings.

According to a “Cable News Rankings” report, posted by Trump, the total viewership of Cable News Rankings on Saturday, March 4, 2023, revealed Fox News’s coverage of Trump’s speech at CPAC topped the ranking with over 1.6 million viewers. Newsmax’s coverage of Trump’s speech also made the ranking with over 600,000 viewers.
Trump also overflowed the venue of CPAC with a huge crowd of supporters on Saturday that even included the former President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro.
Trump’s CPAC speech was held in the Potomac Ballroom of the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. The ballroom can hold 5,520 people seated. Trump’s audience was packed to the brim and there were even more people watching from outside of the ballroom.
Trump crushed any questions of him not being the leader of the Republican party yet again with a 42-point landslide lead in CPAC’s famous straw poll released on Saturday.
Trump came in first place, of course, with 62 percent. Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) came in second place with 20 percent, 42 points behind Trump.
With polls showing Trump in the lead amongst all potential Republican and Democrat challengers, any potential candidate will have an impossible battle if they attempt to usurp the favorite to win the 2024 nomination.
