Poll: Republicans, Trump Voters Not Likely to Follow Megyn Kelly to NBC

by Alex Swoyer

Megyn Kelly may lose Republicans and Donald Trump voters as part her audience base when she moves from Fox News to NBC News, according to the latest Morning Consult poll.

The results suggest Kelly will have more Democratic viewers, though.

Twenty-nine percent of Hillary Clinton voters said they are more likely to tune into Kelly at NBC News, while 26 percent of Trump voters say they’re less likely to watch her.

The results suggest that millennials are more likely to watch Kelly now that she is at NBC.

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.
