The authors show that most, in the Baire category sense (a subset of a metric space is called of the Baire category, if it can be presented as a countable union of nowhere dense sets), Markov operators \(P\) acting on the space of finite Borel measures \(\mu\) supported on a compact subset of \(\mathbb R^d\) are asymptotically stable (in the Fortet-Mourier norm) and have singular stationary (i.e., \(P\mu=\mu\)) measure.
