HILLARY GETS THUMPED BY TRUMP – And Her Acceptance Speech Has 7.7 Million Fewer Viewers Than Obama in 2012
Donald Trump thumped Hillary Clinton this year in acceptance speech viewers.
Trump averaged 32.2 million viewers during his nomination speech while Hillary averaged only 28 million viewers.
The LA Times reported:
Nearly 35 million TV viewers watched GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s acceptance speech Thursday night at the Republican National Convention.
Nielsen reported that an average of 32.2 million viewers watched across the ad-supported networks that carried the speech between 10 and 11:45 p.m. ET. An additional 2.65 million viewers were tuned in on PBS from 10 to 11:30 p.m. ET.
Not only did Hillary Clinton lose to Donald Trump, the Democratic nominee had 7.7 million fewer viewers than Barack Obama did back in 2012.
An average of approximately 28 million viewers watched Hillary Clinton’s acceptance speech on the final night of the Democratic National Convention Thursday evening, according to preliminary ratings data from Nielsen.
For comparison, 30 million watched the final night of the RNC last week in the preliminary ratings, and 35.7 million watched the final night of the DNC back in 2012.
That’s not all.
Hillary Clinton received 1,594,720 FEWER primary votes than in 2008… And she LOST the primary in 2008.
And Democrats lost NEARLY 7 Million primary votes this year compared to 2008.
Nielson Media Research final numbers on ACCEPTANCE SPEECH: TRUMP 32.2 MILLION. CLINTON 27.8 MILLION. Thank you!
