The Democrats really excited about the midterm elections. They seem pretty convinced that a ‘blue wave’ is coming and they will finally have a little bit of power back when they take the House. It’s possible. Historically, the party not in power always does well. At the same time, it’s very possible they don’t take back the House because they don’t have any new ideas or beneficial policies.
Regardless of what happens on Tuesday night, both sides should agree not to celebrate until the votes are actually counted.
Over at MSNBC, they got a little too excited and apparently couldn’t wait.
From The Daily Wire:
In yet another misfire at the most steadily misfiring of networks, MSNBC accidentally aired the results of Florida’s gubernatorial a race, as Deadline put it, “a wee bit too early” — the night before the election.
The big winner: You guessed it, the Democrat on the ticket, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who managed to secure a victory. With 99% of the vote tallied, MSNBC imagined that Gillum had secured 49.4% of the vote over Republican Ron DeSantis’s 48.8%.
Another embarrassing gaffe for that disaster of a network.
MSNBC isn’t exactly crushing it in the ratings and it’s not hard to see why.
Check out the numbers they’ve been putting up lately.
In the advertiser covered 25-54 age demo, Fox News jumped 16 percent during primetime and three percent in total day, while CNN took a swan dive by double digits — a loss of eleven percent of its demo viewers during primetime and 16 percent in total day.
In this particular metric, the news was somehow worse for MSNBC. In the all-important 25-54 age demo, MSNBC actually managed to lose to CNN during primetime. Overall, MSNBC lost 19 percent of its primetime demo viewers and 20 percent of its total day demo viewers.
With both MSNBC and CNN shedding younger viewers by double digits, and Fox News increasing its younger primetime viewers by double digits (16 percent), it would appear as though America’s youth is finally growing tired of all the mindless Trump bashing and race baiting.
Finally, for the first time in a long time, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow failed to rank among the top five cable news shows. In fact, all five of those slots were filled by Fox shows.
