In every election of the past decade I have predicted the results based on Nielsen's cable news viewing numbers. So far, I have always gotten it right. And, if that happens again next Tuesday, the Democrats are in for a disaster.
By now most of you must know that there's little new, merely a continuation of second quarter trends. All four of the networks are losing viewers, CNN losing by far the most and MSNBC, by a nose, the least.
According to a report just out from Nielsen on video views for April, visitors to Justin.tv, the live web video site, had an average of nearly 170 minutes watched per month per user, versus just 95 minutes for YouTube watchers.
