2012 Ratings: Fox News Number One For 11 Straight Years
"Fox News had some high points and low points, with most of its programs roughly on par with their 2011 performances. That said, the network still drew more viewers than CNN, MSNBC and HLN combined in primetime. "
So then, with all those viewers and Rush and Hannity projecting Gloom and Doom with Obama ... why did the Conservatives lose the last two presidential elections (Losing 8 out of 12 years) ???
Maybe many of the viewers (like me) were smart, saw the Bias and didn't believe a word ... and moved on to the truth.
Conservatives lost the last two presidential elections because their candidates were weak. McCain, for all his past glories, was not a good campaigner or communicator, and picked then unknown Palin as running mate. Romney never came across as real or empathetic to anyone, rich or poor. And Ryan was polarizing, broadly cast as a radical by the unfailingly pro-Obama press.
So, two marginal candidates, two questionable VP picks, a press that runs pro-Obama 24/7, and a populace of increasingly dumbed-down and gullible voters. Recipe for disaster for conservatives.
Conservative ideas are still valid and popular. Witness the 2010 races and outcomes. 32 state governors. The problem is the presidential candidates, not the ideology.
