TV Ratings For Obama’s Speech At The Dem Convention Were Surprisingly Low

Obama AL

Apparently, America is getting Obama fatigue. It’s impossible to think of people ignoring a speech by Obama eight years ago but his speech at the Democratic Convention this week, he didn’t get much attention.

The Daily Caller reports:

Numbers Fall On Third Night Of The Democratic Convention

Numbers dropped on the third night of the Democratic National Convention, despite Barack Obama’s 49 minute speech.

According to Deadline, an estimated 24.2 million viewers watched the president address the crowd in the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia Wednesday night.

Those numbers are 18 percent lower compared to the ratings Ted Cruz got when he spoke at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last week. This is the first time the RNC coverage has outperformed the DNC.
The numbers are surprising considering Joe Biden, Tim Kaine and Obama were the speakers Wednesday. As Obama spoke, he gave a defiantly optimistic speech on behalf of the nation and Clinton.

“A lot’s happened over the years,” Obama said. “And while this nation has been tested by war and it’s been tested by recession and all manner of challenges, I stand before you again tonight, after almost two terms as your president, to tell you I am even more optimistic about the future of America than ever before.”

“How could I not be, after all that we’ve achieved together?”

“After the worst recession in 80 years, we’ve fought our way back. We’ve seen deficits come down, 401(k)s recover, an auto industry set new records, unemployment reach eight-year lows, and our businesses create 15 million new jobs.”

Obama won’t be giving many more speeches as President.

Many Americans see that as a good thing.
