More people still see Tucker Carlson favorably rather than unfavorably after leaks

Even after supposedly unflattering videos of Tucker Carlson were leaked by Fox News to Media Matters, more people still see him favorably than unfavorably, according to a new survey.

An Economist/YouGov poll found that 41% view Carlson favorably while 37% had an unfavorable view.

Fox News leaked several clips of Carlson to the liberal outlet, including one in which he says "no one" watches Fox Nation, Fox News's streaming outlet and that he'd rather throw all his content on YouTube.

Another leaked clip featured Carlson saying when he watched a clip of people beating up an "Antifa kid" that at first, he "really wanted them to hurt the kid," but then he realized it was wrong and he had to remember the person's humanity.

Conservatives said the leaks "humanized" Carlson and made him "cooler."

Sorry Fox News, looks like you still made a bad decision.
