Two political scientists retracted a study last week that claimed comedian Jon Stewart’s departure from Comedy Central’s influential “Daily Show” helped get President Trump elected.
Tom Wood of Ohio State University and Ethan Porter of George Washington University published their paper in April to London-based journal Electoral Studies, claiming the political satirist’s absence on the satirical news show led to a 1.1 percent increase in Trump’s vote share.
The article goes on to state the following:
The researchers collected rating for the show across the U.S. and county-level voter turnout for 2012 and 2016. They theorized that the change in hosts from Stewart, who mocked Trump nightly, to Trevor Noah, led to a dip in ratings. The result was Trump earning around 1 percent more of the votes in each county.
