This is the Death of The Democrat Party… The Demise Will be Televised
The second evening of the virtual Democrat National Convention (DNC) suffered a sharp television ratings drop from four years ago, according to Nielsen.
The Hill notes:
The Democratic National Convention drew 6.13 million viewers on broadcast television networks ABC, CBS and NBC on Tuesday night, according to preliminary data, marking a 48 percent drop from the second night of the convention in 2016.
The Nielsen Media Research numbers come after broadcast ratings dropped by 42 percent on Monday night when compared to the first night of the convention in 2016. When including cable news networks MSNBC, CNN and Fox News, the total viewership on the first night of the 2020 convention was 18.6 million, an overall decrease of 27 percent from four years ago.
TV viewership is not the only measurement of audience numbers, however.
The DNC’s Tuesday event featured remarks by former President Bill Clinton, freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and former second lady Jill Biden.
