News and Information Sources: Television

Overall, New Mexico residents are slowly weaning themselves off of television news.  Since 2011, and despite two years of increases, television a news source has dropped 5 percent over the past four years.  With that said, it is still the most popular news source among all residents, regardless of political party affiliation.
