Regardless of how they may feel about President Donald J. Trump’s politics, it is clear viewers of nightly news cared about President Trump far more than whatever Joe Biden is doing.

While Fox News has seen a rating dip in single digits, MSNBC is seeing half the drop CNN is — and both figures are significant.

Data used for the average total audience watching shows March 1-5 compared to the average from Nov. 30-Dec. 4 showed the following:

CNN Tonight With Don Lemon down 32.5 percent
Anderson Cooper 360 (CNN) down 32.2 percent
Cuomo Prime Time (CNN) down 28.5 percent
All In with Chris Hayes down (MSNBC) 16.7 percent
Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell (MSNBC) down 17.6 percent
Rachel Maddow Show (MSNBC) down 9.1 percent
The Ingraham Angle (FNC) down 9.2 percent
Hannity (FNC) down 11.9 percent
Tucker Carlson Tonight (FNC) down 4.8 percent
