Beto Bombs At CNN Town Hall



Deadline: Beto O’Rourke’s Tuesday night town hall with CNN’s Dana Bash failed to attract the hoped-for crowd. The 10-11:15 PM broadcast attracted only an average of 714,000 viewers. That includes 194K in the news demo, aka viewers 25-54.

In the same block of time, Fox News Channel clocked 2.260M viewers and MSNBC logged 2.196M.

News-demo-wise, FNC averaged 362K 25-54 year olds, with MSNBC not too far behind at 315K.

O’Rourke’s numbers fell 29% shy of CNN’s 2019 average in the Tuesday night block of time, and 38% short in the news demo.

Despite his suit and tie, livestreamed haircut, and his cogent answers to policy questions from Bash and the Drake University audience, O’Rourke’s stab at a White House race reboot missed the mark. For context: Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper attracted a bigger crowd when he town-halled on CNN (745K) on a Wednesday back in March.  read more

  1. Like Socialism, he thinks his ideas are great and they just need to be packaged correctly. Hopefully that billionaire father-in-law demands his money and is daughter back.

  2. This Irish wanker is an embarrassment to my culture by pretending to be hispanic. Liar! Fraud!

  3. Beto O’Rourke is a fucking asshole.Get away already. Vamoose! Or as they say in Ireland, fuck to fuck off!
