Fox News has definitely made a move more toward center in recent months.
The network has distanced itself from Trump considerably.
This has created a bit of an opening for Newsmax, and the network has made the most of it.
Boom in Ratings
Since Fox News did not want to air the recent Trump rally in PA, Newsmax gobbled it up.
Boy did it pay off.
Fox News actually trailed Newsmax in ratings when the Trump rally was being aired.
In fact, Newsmax beat the ratings of CNN and MSNBC combined.
Newsmax pulled in 1.7 million TV viewers (1.9 million overall for the coverage) as well as an estimated 1.2 million viewers via other applications.
During that same time, Fox News drew 942,000 viewers during the actual speech, while Newsmax had 1.03 million when Trump was on stage.
CNN, during that same period, had 406,000 viewers, with MSNBC pulling in 444,000 viewers.
This is huge news for Newsmax and now appears to be the new home of Donald Trump.
