That figure includes audiences on 13 networks -- ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, PBS, Univision, Telemundo, CNBC, CNN, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, Current TV and TV One -- during live coverage from 8-11 p.m. ET.
In primetime, NBC was the most-watched network, averaging 12.1 million viewers. It was followed by Fox News, which had 11.5 million viewers and ABC, which averaged 10 .5 million. CNN was fourth with 9.3 million viewers in primetime, CBS was fifth with 7.9 million viewers, Fox was sixth with 4.9 million and MSNBC averaged 4.7 million viewers.
For full-night cable ratings (7 p.m.-2 p.m. ET), CNN had a slight lead on Fox News. FNC for its part was the only cable network to grow its audience from 2008 Election Night, as was CBS on the broadcast side.
Any African-American candidate will win because of the changed demographic contour of America. Obama won because 100% African-Americans and Muslims voted for him. This monopoly is denied to White Americans. If Cain had contested, he would have got more votes than Mitt. African-Americans and Muslims form a pocket borough of Obama. Hillary got defeated in the primaries because of this racial advantage for Obama. Even Powell deserted Republican party and voted for Obama. So it is a lesson for White Americans.Unless Americans amend immigration laws like some European countries and the Soviet Union, a White candidate cannot win any election, if he is opposed by an African-American. What is more, an African-American president like Obama will go to any length to ease immigration rules. Another factor is that while there has been a population explosion among Muslims (a family having 10 children) and also among African-American families, Americans are dwindling because of Obama sponsored policies such as gay and lesbian marriages, abortion, singles and divorce.In another decade White Americans will find themselves a minority in America.
