The Summer of CNN Politics

The online political news source sees 5th straight month atop the digital leaderboard.

Some have referred to it as the “Summer of Trump,” but for those covering the political phenomena that is the Donald, it also might be appropriately labelled the “Summer of CNN Politics.”

For the fifth straight month, the online political news source has seen its digital numbers surge — leading all competitors (Fox News Politics,, HuffPost Politics, and several others) in multiplatform unique visitors (desktop + mobile), mobile unique visitors, multiplatform views and video starts.

According a CNN press release, the recently published comScore numbers for July in the Politics Category show that CNN Politics “outperformed other political news outlets by double and triple digits.” The political news website’s continued success comes after similar numbers last month, in which the site enjoyed double digit growth across the board.
