Here’s a tidbit from over the weekend, but it put a smile on our faces. We’ve reported before that a CBS News said that Joe Biden’s virtual happy hour for young voters was “lit,” but the number of viewers wasn’t exactly lighting up, hovering around 2,800 viewers.
That’s a much bigger audience than Biden had for his recorded address to the Wisconsin Democrat Convention though, where the number of viewers hovered around 68.
A whopping 68 people are watching Joe Biden’s recorded address for the Wisconsin Democrat Convention.

I still think that 68 is a bit high.

We think even some of Beto O’Rourke’s neighborhood “watch parties” during the debates drew a crowd about that size.

All 68 are either staffers nervous about a gaffe or journos prepared to ignore a gaffe.

55 of those were conservative podcast and talk radio guys.

It would appear that 68 people want to listen to someone reading from a bowl of alphabet soup.

I would have expected hundreds of thousands just for the comedy value.

Since it was recorded, there was no suspense waiting to see if Biden would make it through the whole thing.

Pretty soon I’m going to start feeling sorry for him not enough to vote for him but I will send a sympathy card.
— Dawn Comfort (@dawn_comfort) June 13, 2020
He’s apparently leading in all the polls by double-digits, so maybe people didn’t watch because they already know they’re voting for him.
