Something must be wrong. How can more people watch McCain’s convention speech than Obama’s? How can McCain be more of a rock star than The One?
Presidential candidate John McCain’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention drew more television viewers than his rival Barack Obama attracted at the Democratic party’s event last week, according to preliminary ratings from Nielsen Media Research.
Riding the Palin wave and the end of the NFL season-opener might have a little something to do with it.
But McCain’s speech was aired by 8 networks. Obama had two more, Black Entertainment Television and TV One, neither of which aired McCain’s. Guess they thought that with Obama pulling 95% of the black vote, why bother?
Oh, and don’t look now, but a Gallup poll from Tuesday – Thursday has Obama’s lead down to 4 points. The full effect of the RNC won’t be known until Monday when post-convention polling will be released. And we haven’t even started the debates yet, where there is NO teleprompter. hahahahaha!
