The left-wing media just ran yet another article smearing former president Donald J. Trump. This time they’re attacking his net worth after he selflessly dedicated five years of his life trying to Make America Great Again. CNN has lost 47% of primetime audience among the 25-to-54 demographic most important to advertisers.
CNN ratings tank after Trump leaves office
According to the article, from the time Trump entered the White House in January 2017 to his departure a few months ago, Donald Trump’s fortune fell by nearly a third, from $3.5 billion to $2.4 billion. The S&P 500, meanwhile, increased 70%.
CNN has been hemorrhaging viewers since former President Trump left office, losing roughly half of its audience in key measurables since January following a brief post-Election Day spike.
CNN averaged 2.5 million primetime viewers from Nov. 4, the day following the presidential election, through Inauguration Day on Jan. 20. But viewers fled the liberal network once President Biden took office, and CNN has averaged only 1.6 million primetime viewers from Jan. 21 through March 15.
CNN’s viewership during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. ET dropped 36% since Biden took office after it spiked following Election Day. CNN’s primetime viewership decline was even sharper among the key demographic of adults age 25-to-54, plummeting 47% during the same period.

Americans miss having a real president
CNN’s viewership also suffered among the total day audience since Trump left office, leaving the liberal network without its favorite punching bag.
CNN averaged 1.7 million viewers from Nov. 4 through Jan. 20, but it dropped to 1.1 million since Biden took office for a 34% fall. During the same period, CNN shed 44% of its total day viewers among the key demo, dropping from an average of 483,000 to only 272,000.
Longtime broadcaster Ted Koppel famously mocked CNN’s Brian Stelter to his face back in 2018, telling the network’s media pundit that “CNN’s ratings would be in the toilet without Donald Trump.”
Stelter shook his head in disagreement, but it turns out that Koppel was onto something. CNN’s ratings’ nosedive is even worse when tossing out the weeks following Election Day.
CNN averaged 3.1 million primetime viewers from Dec. 28 through Jan 20, but it plummeted to 1.6 million from Inauguration Day to the present for a drop of 49%. When it comes to the key demo, CNN lost a staggering 58% of its viewers during the same time frames.
