DNC crushes RNC television ratings(Twitter too!)

(AP) NEW YORK - Michelle Obama has bragging rights over Ann Romney in one early measurement — television ratings.

The Nielsen Co. said about 26.2 million people watched the opening night of the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday in Charlotte, N.C., where the first lady was the featured speaker.

Last week, Nielsen said 22.3 million watched the first night of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., where potential first lady Ann Romney talked about her husband, Mitt. The same number of viewers watched the Democrats' first night in 2008, when Michelle Obama was also the featured speaker.

Michelle Obama was a big hit Monday in a measurement by the social media network Twitter. The company said she was responsible for at least 28,003 tweets per minute shortly after she delivered her speech.

By contrast, the peak moment at the GOP convention was 14,289 tweets per minute during Mitt Romney's acceptance speech, Twitter said. Ann Romney's peak was 6,195 per minute, said Elaine Filadelo, Twitter spokeswoman. The company measures the volume of tweets through the use of hashtags, names and phrases, so it's possible the number could be larger in all cases.

Looking like Michelle's ratings are matching her ass size. F^$K you see the size of that beam? Damn, near needed a dozen or so wide load flags. And she she is our nutrition expert? What a shame, what a shame.

http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/380992/20120905/michelle-obama-convention-speech-dnc-rnc-transcript.htm


Michelle Obama struck a cord at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) Tuesday night in Charlotte. The First Lady, or "FLOTUS," stood at the podium and shared a heartwarming story about her family, her husband's past, their shared values, and their dream to build a better country based on those values.

Her speech clearly resonated with the public: Michelle Obama was the center of most conversations on Twitter, YouTube and Facebook that evening, as her speech broke all sorts of records for social media and politics.

According to Twitter, users released more than 28,003 tweets per minute during Michelle Obama's speech, which roughly doubled the tweets-per-minute mark set by Mitt Romney during his acceptance speech at last week's RNC (14,289).

The numbers, while important, do not tell the full story, however. For the most part, the emotion towards Michelle Obama's speech was overwhelmingly positive. Twitter users raved about the First Lady's emotional, inspirational tales, and her grace at the podium. Her quotes were retweeted thousands of times.

In contrast, the discussion around Mitt Romney was mostly negative. His speech at the RNC, in fact, generated the lowest approval rating among those surveyed adults since Gallup began polling the speeches in 1996. And that's saying something.

Follow us

The GOP can still be proud of what it accomplished at the RNC. The convention was a trending topic for several days, more than 2.5 million users tuned in on YouTube to stream more than 300,000 hours of video footage, and users shared more than four million tweets about the event.

"I think our [digital] strategy was right on, and it sets the bar for how future conventions and events should be run," said James Davis, the communications director for the 2012 RNC.

However, the highlights of the RNC were not what Mitt Romney had hoped. Twitter and YouTube interaction was highly skewed because of Clint Eastwood's infamous "empty chair speech." Furthermore, the most retweeted tweet of the RNC was President Obama's tweeted response to Eastwood's speech: "This seat's taken."

The last time I saw a roll call for President this late in the evening was in 1972 when McGovern lost control late in the evening/morning. Bad luck.

Oh don't let his "serious talk" with all the "serious links" fool you. 
That's all just intellectualized insults.
Please be sure your replies demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, create straw men and argue against things I have neither said or implied.  Forgo all civility, you after all, anon.

Play it up all you want. There is no way Obama can revive this train wreck. He's all talk and no substance.
If I constantly tell people that I love kittens, and that I'm against harming kittens, but yet every politician I vote for, supports kitten harming and legislation that promotes increased kitten harming. And then everytime kitten harming comes up in a forum, I attack the people that are kitten lovers, and rant against kitten loving websites. Am I actually a kitten lover? I don't think so.

You know, when you can't find anything bad to say about someone you should ALWAYS insult their physical appearance.

We all learned that in third grade. :rolleyes:
