Palin's Nielsen Ratings
« on: September 04, 2008, 11:41:24 AM »

Sarah Palins moment in history attracted more television viewers than any night of any GOP convention in history. Her television ratings rivaled Barack Obamas speech last week as Right Pundits predicted would happen.

She was just 1.1 million viewers under Obamas audience of 38.3 million but she commanded a relatively higher percentage of viewers who were watching TV on the respective nights. Barracuda Sarah has the wow factor.

She drew in this audience while her speech was covered on only six TV networks. Obama was carried by ten. Perhaps significantly Sarah Palin attracted a larger female audience than he did in Denver, and she attracted a larger Hispanic audience. She attracted more of the elderly, more family households, and more white voters. However she attracted far less African-American viewers which explains the 1.1 million difference between the two speeches.

So, from unknown five days ago to 1.1MM less than O.  Not bad for the mayor of a town of less than 9,000. cheesy
If the bandersnatch seems even mildly frumious, best to shun it.  Really.

Pretty bad when the anointed one cannot pull down much better ratings than some backwoods hick. She's killing him in internet search ratings, apparently nobody wants to find the nude BHO photos.

I'm so contrarian that I didn't respond to the thread.

wait till she goes on the stump and starts talking, and people start listening. people are going to start wondering why BHO's speeches are so empty of substance.
