From Nancy Pelosi on down, every Democrat in America is walking on egg shells.
They don’t want the American people to know the true state of the Party.
And CNN was hiding a secret that leaked out that’s the final nail in the Democrat Party’s coffin.
In 2016, Americans could tell there was tremendous energy behind Donald Trump’s campaign based on the record ratings drawn by the Republican presidential debates.
A record 25 million Americans tuned in for the first debate on Fox.
Democrats, by contrast, saw much lower viewership numbers – which was evidence the GOP base was more excited to turn out than the Democrats.
History is repeating itself in 2020.
The second Democrat presidential debate on CNN drew just 8.7 and 10.7 million viewers on the first and second night respectively.
CNN’s Democrat primary debates Tuesday and Wednesday night attracted just 8.7 million and 10.7 million viewers respectively – numbers that pale in comparison to June’s Democrat primary debates hosted by NBC.
The first night’s debate – which featured candidates such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and author Marianne Williamson (D) – drew just 8.7 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research data. However, CNN says the final number looked more like 9.2 million viewers after combining the network’s digital streaming services.
Even with CNN’s streaming services considered, the numbers still pale in comparison to the first night of the Democrat debates hosted by NBC in June, with the first debate attracting over 15 million viewers.
Despite that, Tuesday’s debate managed to garner slightly more than the popular Tuesday night shows America’s Got Talent, which garnered 7.9 viewers, and Hannah Brown’s season finale of The Bachelorette, which averaged 7.4 million, according to CNN.
Those numbers are more or less the same compared to the 8.5 million viewers that the second Democrat debate in 2016 drew.
If television ratings are indicative of excitement about the candidates – and they were one important metric in 2016 – the current crop of Democrat presidential contenders are not doing much to inspire the American people.
