Tucker Carlson has become the bane of the left’s existence.
The Fox News host has been a thorn in their side ever since sliding into his primetime slot.
Now Carlson got some news that is driving Democrats completely insane.
According to the latest ratings from Nielsen Media Research, Carlson’s show had its highest-rated month ever.
Carlson averaged over 3.4 million viewers for the month, and 551,000 in the critical 25-54 demographic.
Fox News was the top-rated cable news channel for the 41st consecutive month, and saw a 15% increase in viewership.
Conversely, CNN saw an 11% drop in primetime viewership.
Carlson’s and Fox News’s spike in the ratings combined with CNN’s sharp drop suggests that the impeachment charade was a flop in the eyes of most Americans.
But what has to be truly infuriating for the Democrats is that their nonstop campaign to have Carlson taken off the air has failed miserably.
Prominent leftists have worked in conjunction with Media Matters, a left-wing smear machine, to go after Carlson’s advertisers.
It’s a despicable tactic that the left has employed for years.
They can’t stand that Carlson is popular, so they want to take him off the air despite the fact that many people watch his show.
The only primetime host more popular than Carlson is Fox News’ Sean Hannity with a narrow lead in the ratings.
Carlson presents a unique challenge to the left.
He opposes unfettered illegal immigration and does it by exposing the hypocrisy and nonsense of the left.
Illegal immigration is currently the most powerful weapon the Democrats have at the moment, so Carlson is a particular threat.
Without endless waves of illegal immigration, Democrats would struggle mightily in national elections.
Instead they’ve turned California—a state that sent two Republican governors to the White House—into a Democratic stronghold.
Illegal immigration has also helped flip Virginia blue, and Texas is on the brink of turning purple.
Carlson has also pointed out how illegal immigration has put downward pressure on U.S. blue collar wages, a point Democrats used to make when they were more hawkish on immigration.
But they’ve long since sold out the American worker in order to get new voters.
Carlson is also staunchly anti-war, which rankles the war hawks in the Democratic Party as well as the Trump Derangement Syndrome contingent that reflexively supports war because Donald Trump opposes it.
These are the same people that said Trump would start a nuclear war during the 2016 election.
Carlson advised Trump not to carry out a military strike against Iran that would’ve killed 150 people.
Democrats in big media actually called Trump a “coward” for not authorizing the strike.
Carlson is also willing to engage with the left on his show, often giving people a chance to see how bankrupt their ideas are.
For these reasons, Democrats perpetually have Carlson in their sights.
But despite their deceitful campaign, Carlson is going strong in the ratings.
