Face it, Hillary.
They’re just not that into you.
The figures are in and Donald Trump received 2.4 million more viewers last week than Hillary Clinton did last night at the DNC convention in Philly.
It looks like Donald Trump is going to take the lead over Hillary Clinton this election – at least when it comes to how many people watched the last night of the Republican National Convention and how many watched the last night of the Democratic National Convention.

With figures in from NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News Channel and MSNBC, the ex-Secretary of State’s historic acceptance speech as the first woman to be the Presidential nominee for a major American political party drew 27.8 million viewers. That 10 PM – 11:40 PM ET coverage is down 2.4 million from what Trump and the RNC got on the same outlets on July 21 from 10 – 11:45 PM ET.
Or to put that in percentile, last night’s DNC numbers on the broadcasters and top cable newers saw an 8% dip in total viewers from what the RNC snagged the week before.
