Fox News hosts Laura Ingraham, Ainsley Earhardt, Dana Perino and Chris Wallace rounded out the five most popular hosts among Republicans.

Republicans’s top 13 favorite TV hosts all work at Fox News, according to the Morning Consult survey.

The poll sampled 895 Republican adults between Nov. 6 and 7. The margin of error was 3 percent.

Carlson’s success in the 8 p.m. slot has made him a target for harassment and threats from left-wing agitators. (RELATED: A Left-Wing Mob Showed Up At Tucker Carlson’s House And Ordered Him To ‘Leave Town’)

A left-wing mob showed up at Carlson’s house on Nov. 7, damaged his property and ordered him to “leave town.”

Washington, D.C., police are investigating the mob intimidation as a “suspected hate crime.”

Carlson revealed Sunday that his teen daughter was harassed at a restaurant in October.

The alleged perpetrator, represented by attorney Michael Avenatti, is said to have called Carlson’s daughter “Tucker’s whore” and a “f***ing cunt.”
