Last year witnessed the rise of Newsmax and One America News, two alternative media outlets seen as potential competitors to Fox News. But a new survey finds that the long-standing cable superpower still has a much wider reach among both Republicans and Americans overall as a source of political news. In addition, while about three-in-ten Democrats and those who lean Democratic get political news from Fox, virtually none of them do from Newsmax and One America News, according to the survey.
While Fox does well among its conservative Republican core audience, it is also used by substantial portions of Democrats and ideologically moderate and liberal Republicans, according to the survey. And it attracts roughly equal portions of White, Black, and Hispanic Americans.
For their part, the much smaller Newsmax and One America News audiences are made up largely of older and White Americans and conservative Republicans.
