This is bad news for the RINOs trying to replace Donald Trump.
The Ratings for the 3rd debate dropped again.
Ratings by debate:
1st debate: 12.8 million
2nd debate: 9.5 million
3rd debate: 7.51 million
NBC said that average of 7.51 million viewers watched the third Republican debate Wednesday night across the broadcast network, streaming and digital, marking a drop from the previous two GOP debates this cycle.
The figure is still a relatively solid number, but it’s off from the 9.5 million who watched the second debate in September and the 12.8 million who watched the first in August. Fox Business and Fox News hosted those debates, respectively. The debate audiences also are off from the blockbuster figures of the 2016 cycle, when Donald Trump first ran for president. Trump has so far skipped all of the GOP debates this cycle.
Wednesday night’s debate from Miami averaged 6.86 million viewers on NBC.
The debate was also streamed on NBC News Now, which saw its largest average primetime audience ever and its highest peak audience on record, according to a network spokesperson, although the underlying streaming numbers were not released. The event also was shown on NBCNews.com, Peacock, Sky News and other platforms.
Donald Trump has been skipping the debates – he is dominating primary polling.
ABC News reported:
As five 2024 Republican hopefuls take the debate stage in Miami to make their case to voters on Wednesday night, for the third time this year, the primary front-runner — former President Donald Trump — will once again be absent.
Trump has said he sees no value in attending the debates, despite some outcry and criticism, because his polling lead with GOP voters gives him no incentive to face attacks from the other candidates.
“I like to debate. I probably am here because of debates. I don’t mind it at all,” he told Fox News’ Bret Baier in an interview this summer. “But when you’re 40 points up …. Why would I let these people take shots at me?”
Having skipped the first two faceoffs, Trump continues to poll at No. 1 both nationally and in the key early primary states, according to 538.
The RINOs are losing.
