Democratic Convention Rules in Online Views

Sep 9, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Despite the public’s thirst for stories and videos on Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, the speeches from the Democratic National Convention so far have pulled in 50% more online video views than those from the Republican National Convention.
The Democrats’ convention ran Aug. 25-28, while the GOP gathering was held Sept. 1-4, and the numbers for each party from Web tracking firm Visible Measures start with the kick-off their respective events, running through Sept. 8.
That’s the conclusion of a report released today by online video research firm Visible Measures.
Visible Measures said that as of Monday, the Democrats drew more than 3.7 million online views of their convention speeches, compared to 2.4 million for the Republicans. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama attracted the lion’s share of views for his ticket with more than 3.3 million, while Ms. Palin lured nearly 2 million views for the Republicans.

  1. Yeah, and I also read the Bible each day.
    Lock-step followers often revisit their Messiahs, just as the same radicals re-watch the same videos. It’s SO SICK! LOL

    • Brings to mind Trump’s rallies with his disciples having a chance to worship him.
