Ratings for Irrelevant Democrat Convention Plunge 48% Compared to 2016

No one cares.

Online ratings for the Democratic convention have plunged 48% in comparison to the 2016 Democrat convention, suggesting a general decline in interest in the event and the presidential nomination of career politician Joe Biden.

Only 6.13 million people turned into broadcasts from legacy media platforms CBS, ABC, and NBC, a 48% decline from ratings figures these networks gained from covering the 2016 event.

YouTube streams of the convention have also been flooded with dislikes, with streams from mainstream media organizations receiving more dislikes than likes. The decline in interest has come as Democratic bigwigs such as Bill Clinton, Kamala Harris, Jill Biden, Michelle Obama and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have spoken. The largely digital event has featured streams from various locations across the country, with only Biden slated for an in-person nomination acceptance speech from Milwaukee.

Democratic operatives have claimed that the weak viewership numbers are a result of the convention format.

The decline in interest comes as many Americans have additional free time, with wide swathes of the national population still not working due to the coronavirus pandemic. Even as Americans have more leisure time than in recent memory, they can’t seem to find time for the boring Democratic convention.

The Democratic Party is irrelevant. The appeal of Joe Biden lies solely in that he “isn’t Trump,” and the party isn’t offering anything more than canned platitudes to the nation that would attract attention to its convention.

The Republican Party’s convention will occur next week, with a comparable digital format. It will feature President Donald Trump accepting the nomination for President in a speech on the White House Lawn, and it appears possible to likely that the RNC will crush its Democratic equivalent in viewership and ratings.

DECISIVE VICTORY: Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Ballots & Voting Software in Maricopa County

Published

on

Friday morning, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge gave the Trump Campaign and overall MAGA movement another small yet decisive victory in their ongoing legal battle in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to an article by the Associated Press, Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million voter ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County, Arizona’s most popular county which flipped Arizona from Trump to Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported on Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors and their state of perpetual non-compliance with legally issued subpoenas by the Arizona Senate. It appears that today, Judge Thomason has officially ordered that non-compliance to end, and Maricopa County must allow the Senate to proceed with their investigation.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has previously argued that ballots should remain secret and not open to investigation. They see the subpoenas issued by the Senate as illegitimate and that they have no right to access the county’s voting hardware. In turn, the Senate and their legal team have argued that the constitution clearly gives the Legislature the responsibility to enforce the law and to maintain election integrity. It is the Senate’s role to ensure that Arizona elections are free, fair, and pure.

Judge Thomason seemingly agrees with the Senate on all fronts and has called the subpoenas “legal and enforceable”. In his ruling, the Judge also stated:

“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections. The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters. Accordingly, the Senators have the power to subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures. As such, the Subpoenas have a proper legislative purpose. The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”

“We are thrilled and grateful that the judge was able to see the big picture in this whole issue,” said Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “That this has never been about overturning an election. This has always been 100% about voter integrity and finding the answers to all of our voters’ questions about the safety and security and validity of the Arizona electoral system.”

Maricopa County has been accused of committing mass voter fraud, discriminating against Trump voters and using hardware to manipulate votes for Joe Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported that former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora had resigned from his office in disgust with the complacency Maricopa County played in the election fraud. Flora said that he plans to continue to push recall efforts against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for what he sees as crimes against the people of Maricopa County.
