Is it possible that some people are getting tired of the 24/7 dumping on Trump?

the sympathy factor is real, as it was for Bill Clinton following the Starr investigation and subsequent impeachment. But I don't think the sympathy factor goes as deep with DT as it did with BC.

In addition, I think many viewers are just getting fed up with one-sided reporting. Joseph Wulfsohn just wrote a piece on this, saying...

Several conservative commentators who were previously employed by CNN are now speaking out against the network, claiming its current identity is "anti-Trump" instead of neutral, as it claims to be. One claims the network "openly despises conservatives."

In contrast, Fox News seems to be bringing more liberal voices into the discussion, holding town-halls with any serious liberal presidential contender who wishes to be heard and retaining as a Fox contributor some of the more liberal commentators, political figures, former Democrat staffers and others, as 'regulars' on the various shows. CNN and MSNBC have no equivalent of this. So my sense is this is a draw to those who are not already polarized and like to hear both sides of the narrative.

If so, this speaks to the smarts of the decision makers at Fox and the stupidity of those at CNN and MSNBC.
