Sorry CNN!! Nearly 60% Of Voters Don’t EVEN KNOW There’s A Debate On Tonight!!
It looks like not having el Trumpo at your debate makes a yuge difference in the ratings.
Despite CNN’s countdown clock and special live coverage, more than half of U.S. registered voters are not aware of the first debate between the candidates vying for the Democratic presidential nomination, which the news network will broadcast on Tuesday evening.
A Reuters/Ipsos poll of 1,221 adults conducted from Oct. 9 through Oct. 13 found that 57 percent of registered voters were not aware of the debate between the five candidates, to be held at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas.
The lack of awareness had little to do with party affiliation. Only 45 percent of voters registered as Democrats knew of the debate, featuring the candidates for their party’s nomination in the 2016 election.
In the same vein, 16 percent of registered Democrats said they had heard nothing at all about the debate and 34 percent said they had only heard a little bit.
Still, 40 percent of Democrats said they were very interested in their party’s pool of candidates, which includes front-runners Senator Bernie Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Another 45 percent were somewhat interested.
“You can feel the excitement building here,” said CNN news anchor Brooke Baldwin at an outdoor desk in the Nevada sunshine.
Now, if all the 43% of voters that know about the debate watched it, they would get monstrous ratings. But that’s not gonna happen.
How much you wanna bet that Trump will harp on the ratings when they come out?
