More people watched Trump’s convention speech than Clinton’s — and hated it

The numbers-obsessed Donald Trump dodged a bullet last week. His early braggingabout the ratings for his party's convention was undermined a bit by the fact that the Democratic convention's viewership exceeded it on its first three nights. But on night four, the all-important night when Hillary Clinton and Trump both delivered their acceptance speeches, the Republican emerged victorious.

The media did report on it, of course, although such details have never factored heavily into the details of Trump's tweets.
There's only one problem: People liked Clinton's speech way better.


Gallup asked people how they felt about the conventions and the candidates' speeches. Forty-four percent of people said they thought Clinton's speech was "excellent" or "good," while 20 percent said it was "poor" or "terrible." Trump's speech was seen positively by 35 percent of people — and negatively by 36 percent.
On net, then, Clinton's speech was viewed about 24 points more positively than negatively. Trump's was seen about evenly positively and negatively. In Gallup's data going back to 1996, Trump's is the only one to be viewed negatively on net. He also had more than double the rate of people calling his speech "poor" or "terrible" than any speech prior to 2016.

Overall, Trump's convention was more negatively viewed than Clinton's. In data going back to 1984, Trump's convention was the only one where people said on net that they were less likely to vote for the nominated candidate afterward. A majority of respondents, 51 percent, said they were less likely to vote for Trump after seeing his convention.

You are right about Trump. It is shocking that he could be Presidential contender. It is also quite shocking that Clinton is and barely better than had BS made it. For an ald democracy the size of and with the level of sophistication of the US, it is truly horrifying.

Yeah. We knew this sort of thing was coming as soon as Trump started blaming the GOP for the convention, and claiming that his role was only to show up and give a speech on Thursday.

It is interesting. The RNC had higher ratings but Hillary got a larger post-convention bump than Trump did. Which would mean the DNC was more effective than the RNC. That doesn't mean the effect will last until Election Day. It typically doesn't.

Most people claim they want change and want a better country then continue to support the same incompetents over and over again. What I particular love is watching one of the most incompetent Presidents in modern history call someone else unfit to serve when that President continues to show over and over again that he has no clue as to what leadership is.

This to me is a ringing endorsement of Trump

Only in the liberal world is electing another incompetent in Hillary to replace an incompetent in Obama change that will make the country better. Such is liberal logic and why liberalism is a true disease

The best you can do in a thread about how Trump is the only candidate where people said on net that they were less likely to vote for him afterwards is to repeat the same ****ty talking points you always post? ?

What I find it a typical post from you like you post in all other forums totally ignoring the incompetence of Obama and citing meaningless poll numbers which do what I have always stated regarding people who claim they want change but elect the same people over and over again. I find it quite telling how people who want change ignore what Trump said and count on you doing just that.

only in the liberal world is it competent to do what we have done before and calling people who would change what we have done before incompetent. It does appear that the people surveyed have no clue what is going on in this country and that doesn't bode well for the future

Hey, I live in TX, won't bother me at all, Not sure the country or even people like you will like the end result. Rather sad how poorly informed you truly are. Why is it that liberals like you are always reactive instead of being proactive and never actually solve any problems. When the problems really surface it will be too late to say "see I told you so" but then again I will live in the great economy in the state of TX with low cost of living and low taxes while still funding people like you who need those entitlements
