of course, cons ... "experts" like cruiser who know more about tv ratings and politics and string theory quantum physics than you .. will NOW say it doesnt matter.
Despite crowing and getting their undergarments in a bunch during the RNC.
Dems dont need invisible people and chairs.
They got facts.
They got the numbers:
"The Nielsen Co. said about 26.2 million people watched the opening night of the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday in Charlotte, N.C., where the first lady was the featured speaker .. (compared to) ... 22.3 million watched the first night of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., where potential first lady Ann Romney talked about her husband, Mitt."
"Fox News Channel, which has shows that appeal to conservatives, had the smallest audience of the three cable news and three broadcast networks, with 2.4 million viewers"
Oh, and if that doesnt hurt ..
"The television audience for the Republican convention in Tampa, Fla., was down sharply from four years ago, a poll released Wednesday indicated. The Pew Research Center for People and the Press reported 37 percent of the U.S. public said they watched all or some of the Republican convention on television, down from 56 percent in 2008."
RNC. Nothing but an echo chamber.
Audience drops 20% from 2008 ... leaving nothing but the core cons....
