Rasmussen reported:

After being ousted from his prime-time show at Fox News Channel, commentator Tucker Carlson is more popular than the network that fired him – especially among conservatives and Republican voters. Fifty-nine percent ( 59%) of Likely U.S. voters have a favorable impression of Carlson, including 36% who have a Very Favorable opinion of him. Thirty-four percent (34%) view Carlson unfavorably, including 25% with a Very Unfavorable impression.

Carlson’s favorability rating is higher than Fox News, which is viewed favorably by 52% of voters, including 24% with a Very Favorable opinion. Forty-two percent (42%) view Fox News unfavorably, including 28% with a Very Unfavorable impression. Ratings at Fox News have slumped since Monday’s announcement that the network was “parting ways” with its prime-time star. Only 19% of voters believe the departure of Tucker Carlson will make Fox News better, while 32% think Carlson’s exit will make the network worse. Forty-one percent (41%) say the departure of Carlson will not make much difference at Fox.
