Biden hits Trump where it hurts: in the convention speech ratings

Trump's Convention Speech: 21.6 million viewers.

Biden's Convention Speech: 23.6 million viewers.

You just know how the Trumpster Fire likes to rub ratings in the faces of his critics on TV.

Hillary & Bill are extorting employees of A. C. Nielsen. The Clintons have threatened Nielsen employees with kidnapping their children and selling them into white slavery.

Oh, the humanity.

Mighty Joe Biden, aka The Comeback Kid, is one of the most underestimated candidates in US presidential history. He keeps shocking the world. And they’ll keep doubting him.. all the way to the White House.

Next up: giving Trump an old school Irish beat down at the Presidential debates.

These ratings are really burning Boris up! See how he's bumping every pro-Trump, anti-Biden thread that he can!

Let's be Donnie's plummeting ratings!

They’re also burning Trump up. He’d love nothing more than to be on Twitter ranting about his beautiful, perfect ratings. He must be seething right now.

by Anonymousreply 608/28/2020

Why can't he be on Twitter?

by Anonymousreply 708/28/2020

R3, he really is. I called it before he was winning the primary but he's treated similarly to how Truman was.

Boris never wants to comment on bad Trump news threads.

Looks like our poll is not tuned-into Donald.

The final night for the Dems was a 24.6 rating, plus the number of viewers for Trump's acceptance speech was down by a third over 2016.

He's got to be pissed all the way off. Good.

The silence from the right is deafening. I know they were in eager anticipation of the chance to brag about this and cite it as evidence of Joe’s “low enthusiasm.”

by Anonymousreply 1208/29/2020

Fake news! Some people are saying those extra two million who watched Biden were immigrants watching illegally! They don't count! SAD!

Trump not only had lower ratings, but he gave a boring low energy speech for the finale.

Diaper Don's response:

[quote] Wow! Despite the Democrats views across TV and online lie (Con!), we had 147.9 million, the Republican National Convention blew the Democrat National Convention AWAY. Not even close! Just like their lies on Russia, Football (PLAY!) and everything else! NOVEMBER 3rd.

Does Trump really think he had 147.9 million viewers?! Where does he get these numbers? A VERY quick Google search shows the Apollo 11 moon landing as the most-watched TV event in US history... with 125–150 viewers.

Trump's narcissism and inability to create even slightly-belivable lies remains truly staggering.

The US population in 2019 was 328.2 million. Does Trump REALLY think that 45% of all Americans--adults and children--watched his convention?

What a pathetic man he is.

by Anonymousreply 1708/29/2020

r15 should post a link.

Maybe Tweety Amin is adding up EVERY night of his convention and giving himself credit because he spoke a little each day.

But I still doubt it was a bigger audience than every night of the Democratic Convention. Personally, Kamala's night was all I watched.

r15 didn't post a link because there is an entire thread already on it.

See how easy it is to predict the responses of trolls like Donald Trump and Boris?

In 2018, there were 153.7 registered voters in the U.S.

There are approximately 30,700,138 registered Republicans in the U.S, and approximately 43,140,758 registered Democrats.

There are slightly more Independents than Republicans.

136.7 million total voted for President in 2016. Trump received 61,943,670 votes.

In 2008, Obama got more votes than any Presidential candidate in history, 69,456,897. John McCain got 59,934,814.

So where is Trump getting this number from? It doesn’t correspond to anything. He’s saying more people watched his convention that the entire number of voters in 2016.

I guess if you count babies, toddlers, people in a coma with their tv on in their hospital room, and dogs and cats, you might be able to get that number. You’d probably have to add in the goldfish though.

153.7 million registered voters, sorry ^^

There are two different metrics being discussed here: one is television viewers and the other is television viewers combined with online viewers. In the television ratings, it's no contest: the DNC won easily.

For the combined audience, the only source I can find for that supposed "147.9 million views" is an anonymous "senior campaign official" quoted by Fox News. Since Fox News and "senior campaign officials" never lie, of course we have to accept this as the truth, right? I'm not going to link to the Fox News story but here's the relevant quote:

[quote]Meanwhile, the Republican National Convention brought in 147.9 million total views across television and online between Monday and the end of Thursday night's programming, according to a senior campaign official.

So far, I haven't been able to find a single credible source that confirms these numbers. All of the stories I found in a cursory web search reference the original "senior campaign official" and the original Fox News story.

So who’s the lying official? Kellyanne Conway? She lies like she breathes.

No way did almost every single voter in America watch Trump, more than double the amount that voted for him. 313 million Americans, total, have internet access. Only about 307.3 million people age two and up have television according to Nielsen. So he’s claiming almost half the people in America were watching him?

There are 74 million children under 17 in the U.S.

There are approximately 256 million adults in the U.S. total, including ineligible to vote adults, people that don’t speak English, foreigners, etc.

It’s probably Kellyanne. None of those people have the brains to realize how ridiculous what they’re saying is. You could probably get the Nielsen ratings for that night and millions of people watched something else.

Trump is suffering from overexposure. His need to headline every single news cycle and the media's lazy reliance on reporting endlessly on every little tweet and stunt inevitably wears on people's nerves. Even his fans have to be getting a little sick of him after five years of nothing but Trump Trump Trump Trumpitty Trump.

I'm glad the DL consensus is "Lock Him Up."

Now if we can just get Biden, Pelosi and Schumer to do the right thing.

[quote]I called it before he was winning the primary

Yeah, I thought the media counted him out way too early. He expected to not do well until SC. The media makes a big deal out of IA and NH, but those states have very few delegates between them, and are no longer representative of the Democratic base.
