The Republican National Convention has been a disaster for the GOP. In fact, the ratings show that there was more enthusiasm for the Democratic National Convention than the RNC.
After a third night of spewing hatred and lies, the RNC received horrible ratings. Fox News Sports’ executive vice president Michael Mulvihill, Head of Strategy and Analytics, posted the overnight rating numbers, and they look bad for Republicans.
Basically, the third night of the DNC beat the RNC’s night three by more than 50% – which is huge.
But what stands out the most is the enthusiasm that Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris received over current Vice President Mike Pence. Harris beat Pence by a whopping 54% in top markets.
Overnight ratings for night three of the conventions. Six networks combined, 10-11p ET:
Democratic – 16.2
Republican – 10.5
In a matchup of VP nominees, Harris outrated Pence by +54% in America’s biggest markets.

TVline also reports for the big three networks, the RNC’s Wednesday night show was the “smallest combined tally thus far.”
NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” drew more viewers on just one network than the RNC did on three, delivering “the night’s biggest audience.”
