  •  No independents watching, and wasn't broadcast (1+ / 0-)

    Only the diehards were watching, just the Republican partisans and a few Dems like us. No persuadable voters at all. (This election cycle there aren't many persuadable voters at this point anyway.) Ten-second clips might show up on the evening news, but that's it.

    So how much will it matter to the actual election? Not at all.

    Dem convention will be the same. In the end neither convention will have any effect on the numbers. Fine, if we can hold the numbers we have for another ten weeks I'll be happy.

    •  Independents and Dems who care (0+ / 0-)

      watched on C-SPAN, with coverage uninterrupted by ads or bloviating talking heads.

      That isn't a lot of us, but we are, in the terminology of viral marketing, the sneezers who pass it on to others. Word is getting out through "official" channels, too. MSM and even Fox News reporters are calling Republicans liars. Some have yet to get past the terms "misleading", "inaccurate", "distorted", and so on to reach the words "false" and "lie" and "pants on fire" and "bat-crap crazy", but the meaning is sufficiently clear. You don't hear or read the true weasel word "disingenuous" so much any more.

      Hey, Mitt! Thanks for ObamneyCare.
