It’s official: The first night of the Republican National Convention crushed the first evening of the Democratic National Convention a week ago, and in fact, the numbers weren’t even close.
C-SPAN's live stream of night one of the Republican National Convention (RNC) garnered nearly 440,000 views, a major increase over the start of the Democratic National Convention that drew 76,000 views.
'The numbers for Monday night come ahead of traditional TV ratings from Nielsen Media Research, which will be released on Tuesday afternoon,' according to the Hill.
Also, according to The Hill:
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's speech on Thursday night was watched by 21.8 million people on TV, beating out the numbers for other major speeches at the party's convention earlier in the week.
Still, the numbers for Biden mark a 21 percent drop from presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's acceptance speech at the Democratic convention in 2016. They are also more than 38 percent lower than President Trump's acceptance speech at the Republican convention four years ago, which drew 34.9 million viewers.
You know who says the “enthusiasm gap” among Trump and GOP voters didn’t matter four years ago?
The same Democrats who can’t get anyone to watch in 2020.
And Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones’ speech at the RNC last night was, by the way, awesome.
