Is Trump's 'Birther' Crusade Hurting 'Celebrity Apprentice'?

Mike Stobe/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- While Donald Trump's pursuit of President Obama's birth certificate has made him a superstar in some political circles -- and a supervillain in others -- a media research company claims Trump's politics are hurting his reality show.

According to data from National Media Inc., which places political ads on television, the audience for The Celebrity Apprentice ranks among the most liberal of any primetime show.

"I was surprised to find that The Celebrity Apprentice was so liberal, because the audience for Survivor is fairly Republican," said National Media Inc.'s senior vice president for research, Will Feltus.

The Atlantic, which exclusively obtained the data, alleges that left-leaning Celebrity Apprentice audience is down from last year and "falling fast," as Trump continues campaigning against the president, who on Wednesday released his birth certificate in an effort to finally put to rest rumors that he wasn't born in Hawaii.
