the partisan viewing of cable news

The latest Pew Research survey on the partisan make up cable news network viewership:

CNN: 51% Democrats, 18% Republicans, 23% independents

MSNBC: 45% Democrats, 18% Republicans, 27% independents

Fox News: 33% Democrats, 39% Republicans, 22% independents

It is quite surprising to see that 33% of Democrats watch Fox News. That seems to indicate to me that many viewers can't even differentiate between political messages on cable news. Not good for November.

I think it might be more accurate to say that 33% of Fox viewers are Democrat, rather than 33% of Democrats watch Fox.

There's a big difference.
