For decades, Fox News Channel was one of the only places conservative voters could turn for fair news coverage.
Now, that has all changed. Following the 2020 general election and massive voting fraud claims by President Donald Trump and his allies, conservative viewers have left the network in droves.

The Horn News previously reported on a drastic ratings crash post-election for Fox News.
That’s just the beginning of the bad news.
In 2016, Fox News was rated as the most trusted name in cable news — especially among Trump voters.
Since then, the network has lost a staggering 24 points in trust. While still at the top for Trump voters, they’ve lost significant ground to competitors Newsmax, One America News Network, and others.
USA Today/Suffolk University poll found —
Fox News is still, by far, the most trusted news network/media source among previously identified Trump voters from various state and national polls taken in 2020. Among Trump voters, 34% trusted Fox News the most, followed by 17% for Newsmax, 9% for One America News Network, with every other network at 3% or less.
The above numbers, however, also paint a drastically different picture than the numbers four years ago. In late October 2016, Suffolk University and USA TODAY conducted a national poll of likely presidential election voters, and among those who said they would support Trump over Clinton, a whopping 58% trusted Fox News the most. At the time of our October 2016 poll, OANN and Newsmax were barely 4 years old, so they were not offered as options. However, we do not believe that in 2016 they would have been trusted the most by a statistically significant portion of respondents.

It’s a remarkable downturn in support and trust among Trump voters.
