Last night was A BLOWOUT!
The RNC livestream on CSPAN saw nearly SIX TIMES THE VIEWS as the first night as the DNC.
Very appreciative that @CNN covered the vast majority of the Republican Convention last night. That was really good for CNN, while at the same time being good for our Country. Thank you!
