It wasn’t supposed to work this way.
Typically, when a major political party holds their convention their number surge. Americans get to see the top politicians and hear about their plan and promises to make America better. This hasn’t been the case for the Biden campaign though…
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, according to The Hill.
The American public is getting a good dose of liberal insanity and hypocrisy and they don’t like it.
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.
With the Democratic National Convention in full swing and a new running mate by his side, Sleepy Joe Biden holds a slightly narrower lead over President Trump in the latest Rasmussen Reports’ weekly White House Watch survey.
The new national telephone and online survey finds Biden with 48% support among Likely U.S. Voters to Trump’s 44%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, while another four percent (4%) remain undecided.
“Across 15 battleground states, the survey finds Biden has the backing of 49% of registered voters, while Trump lands at 48%.”

President Trump has actually gained two points on Joe Biden so far this week. A week ago, Biden led by six points – 49% to 43%. The former Vice President has bested Trump in every weekly survey to date, with support as high as 50%.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden‘s spokesperson, T.J. Ducklo, tweeted on Tuesday that digital views were up from 2016 and that the campaign is “producing a digital convention, and people are watching.” FALSE.
NEWS: 28.9 million Americans tuned in to @DemConvention last night across TV & digital platforms, up from 2016 & shattering the previous record for digital streams, which totaled 10.2m even as numbers still come in.
We are producing a digital convention, and people are watching.

The Republican National Convention will be held next week, with many speeches being staged outside at the White House, according to President Trump.
