Kelly Has Likely Lost Her Conservative And Trump Supporting Fans With Her Decision To Move To NBC

Republicans and Trump voters are not following Fox News’ former star anchor to her new home base at NBC News.

Megyn Kelly is headed to NBC News, an event that a majority of adults knew about — only 31 percent of people in a recent Morning Consult poll said they have heard nothing about it.

Thirty-six percent of male Democrats said they are more likely to watch Kelly on NBC News, compared to 29 percent of Republican men who said they are less likely to do the same.

The change was smaller among women — 18 percent of female Democrats said they are more likely to watch Kelly on NBC News, versus 25 percent of Republican women who said her move makes them less likely to watch her program.

Forty-seven percent of adults polled said her move will have no effect on their inclination to tune in.

Kelly has a 34 percent favorability rating, just under NBC’s Lester Holt and Matt Lauer. Her favorability rating is higher than NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, Tamron Hall, and Chuck Todd.

The poll questioned 2,200 adults Jan. 5 to Jan. 7 and has a margin of error of plus or minus two points.

With her move to NBC, Kelly may have just alienated both liberals and conservatives, leaving her with almost no fans left.

The three-show deal Kelly took at NBC isn’t looking good for her either. Newsweek reported that the first show Kelly was given was a daytime talk show, which has few models for success.

Hard news hosts like Kelly don’t tend to do well in the soft, fluffy world of daytime, so it is predicted that this show will fail quickly.

Secondly, Kelly was given a Sunday night news show, which is typically a leader in ratings losses. With that time slot, it will be exceedingly difficult for Kelly to develop any kind of loyal fanbase.


Many experts predict that NBC will end up removing Kelly from their main network and exciting her to MSNBC, which would mean she will have fallen from the top-rated news network to the lowest.
