A CNN-Level Collapse: Dem Debate Night 1 Ratings Fall by 25%

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

We here at the Campaign Update have laughed out loud for the last 3 years as CNN’s ratings have collapsed like a treehouse built like a Bernie Sanders acolyte. – Now, the fake news channel’s collapse has rubbed off on its cherished Democrat Party and it’s presidential debates.

Last night’s first of two debates aired solely on CNN this week plummeted from the 15.3 million viewers who tuned into the debates held in late June to just 11.5 million, according to the final ratings released this morning by the Neilsen Media Research group:

CNN’s broadcast of the Democratic debates on Tuesday night attracted 11.5 million viewers, according to final ratings compiled by Nielsen Media Research.

Some 8.7 million people tuned into CNN while the CNN Digital live stream attracted 2.8 million.

The first of two debates from Detroit was watched by approximately 4 million fewer people than the June 26 debate broadcast by NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo, which attracted 15.3 million viewers for the broadcast from Miami.

Oh, my.

Neilsen attributes some of the collapse to the tough competition the Democrat Clown Show faced from airings of “The Bachelorette” on ABC and “America’s Got Talent” on NBC. But if the Democrat field also had talent, wouldn’t concerned Americans tune into their debate and catch “The Bachelorette” on their DVR, sans commercials?

Contrast these ratings to the GOP debates during the summer of 2015, all of which drew well over 20 million viewers, even the fiasco that was moderated by the raging nitwits from CNBC. Critics will contend that that was mainly due to the presence of Donald Trump, but the proper reply to that is yeah, and he won the election, so what’s your point?

The big danger going forward here for the DNC is the stunning lack of public interest in their jalopy clown car. The DNC is already scheming to rid the field of anyone who does not toe the party line – witness what they’ve done to Andrew Yang this week – which most likely means that actually interesting and entertaining outliers like Marianne Williamson, Yang and Tulsi Gabbard won’t be on-stage for the next rounds of debates this fall.

These three interesting people are the only attractions for anyone to the political right of Fidel Castro to actually watch these debates – without them, the only people tuning in will be the same collection of lunatics, nitwits and malcontents who live their entire lives making all the noise on Twitter and Facebook.

Newsflash to the DNC: That is not a winning strategy.

But please, don’t listen to me. Carry on.

That is all.
