Joe Biden’s Speech Got Best Ratings For 2020 Dem Convention But Still Came Up Far Short Compared To 2016

The 2020 Democratic National Convention struggled all week to live up to the ratings of their 2016 convention.

On Thursday, the final night, Joe Biden’s speech got the highest ratings of the week, but he still came up short, compared to Hillary Clinton’s speech in 2016.

This is not a good sign for Old Joe.

Biden’s speech was watched by 21.8 million people on TV, according to initial figures from Nielsen, beating out the early numbers for other major speeches at the convention earlier in the week. The figure, which does not include online streaming of the speech, is expected to grow when additional networks are added…

Still, the initial numbers mark a 21 percent drop from Clinton’s speech at the convention in 2016, when she accepted the Democratic nomination that year. It is also more than 38 percent lower than President Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican convention four years ago, which drew 34.9 million viewers.

Joe Concha, the media reporter for The Hill, broke down the numbers on Twitter:

The Republican National Convention is next week. It’ll be fun to compare the numbers.
