STUNNING: Sarah Palin Almost Bests Obama in Size of TV Audience of her Speech!

Sara Palin, John McCain's #2, generated 37.2 million viewers, just a 1.1 million viewers short of Barak Obama’s record-breaking speech on Day 4 of the Democratic Convention. The Palin speech was carried on only six networks while the Obama speech was carried on ten (including BET, TV One, Univision and Telemundo).

It is absolutely clear that had BET, TV One, Univision and Telemundo carried the Palin speech, she would have exceeded the number of those who viewed the Obama speech even though she is not at the top of the Republican ticket.

Palin attracted a large female audience (19.5 million women, or 4.9 million more than Day 3 of the Democratic Convention).

Ratings for viewers 55+ (25.2) continue to be about ten times higher than for teens (2.2)

Day 3 for the GOP attracted more Hispanic viewers (1.4 million) than Day 3 of the Democratic Convention (1.2 million), even though Univision and Telemundo did not carry the speech.


  1. In our form of government we have a Judicial, Legislative, and Executive branch. Obama claims his “executive” experience was as a “community organizer.”

    To expand on the definition of executive experience, please note that:

    Executive experience, in part, means holding a position subject to responsibilities as prescribed by law, managing human resources, managing budgets and making decisions, which have the potential of affecting several to many people, or the public in general.

    The Honorable Governor of the Great State of Alaska, Sarah Palin, has been a council person, a mayor, and now a governor. All of her positions are/were of intense responsibility. She’s qualified for V.P.

    Obama has NO executive experience.

    Please view the article listed below, “Obama’s Community Roots,” which reads, “In 1985, freshly graduated from Columbia University and working for a New York business consultant, Barack Obama decided to become a community organizer. Though he liked the idea, he didn’t understand what the job involved, and his inquiries turned up few opportunities.”

    The article continues elsewhere, “He discovered the importance of personal storytelling in politics …” And, “Despite some meaningful victories, the work of Obama–and hundreds of other organizers–did not transform the South Side or restore lost industries.”

    The same article says, “A recent Los Angeles Times report contended that Obama overstated his own importance …”

    Not really much to Obama’s “experience”; no definition of responsibilities, no results.


    I also just learned that Mr. Obama was head of the Harvard Law Review. However, the ONLY article he appears to have written was on abortion. Wouldn’t you know it.

    Barack Obama’s Sole Article in Harvard Law Review Promotes Abortion

    Add to Obama’s lack of experience, a severe lack of judgment.

  2. BET, Unision, Telemunda and TV One didn't carry the Repubs?
    So only left leaning media violate balanced reporting of the conventions.
    Isn't that a violation of the Dems Holy Grail "Fairness Doctrine".?
