‘Most Popular President in History’ Delivers Less than Half of Trump’s Viewers

'Honestly, just round up to 100% at this point. We all know it’s utter bullcrap...'

According to Democrats, some 81 million Americans showed up to support President Joe Biden in last year’s presidential election.

From Biden’s Zoomed-in basement campaign to voters’ controversial mail-in ballots, it was a historically low-energy affair for Democrats—especially considering the record-breaking turnout, which made him the most popular president in history, far eclipsing his former boss Barack Obama’s 69.5 million votes in 2008.

Nonetheless, only about an eighth of them bothered to tune in at the 100-day mark to see how Biden was doing during his scaled-down joint address to Congress on Wednesday.

Preliminary data showed that about 11.6 million were viewing at 9 p.m. That compared with 47.7 million for former president Donald Trump’s first State of the Union Address and 52.4 million for that of Obama.

Of Biden’s past four predecessors, none dipped below the 31 million mark, with that low-mark distinction belonging to Obama and Bill Clinton in the latter years of their eight-year terms, after fatigue had set in.

Trump’s lowest viewership was 37.2 million last year.

While the methodology remained unclear, some networks subsequently revised Biden’s numbers upward to 22.6 million in the speech’s aftermath, suggesting the dull, lengthy affair not only retained viewers but drew in more as it went.

Those same mainstream media gas-lighters gave it consistently high marks for substance and style. They claimed it was generally laden with facts and that 85% of Americans offered their seal of approval, using words like “Presidential, “Caring,” “Inspiring” and “Bold,” according to CBS.

Critics later noted that Democrat respondents outnumbered Republicans 3 to 1 in the bogus survey, which also cherry-picked its responses from a much larger sample.

One silver lining for Biden did bear out factually, though: He was able to beat Sunday’s Academy Awards telecast.

Like the State of the Union, the increasingly woke Oscars were down significantly from last year—which already was a recent low in viewership.

But unlike Biden’s speech, this year’s Oscars failed even to crack the 10 million mark and were universally panned after snubbing deceased Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman in favor of Silence of the Lambs star Anthony Hopkins.

Hopkins was not present for his acceptance speech either remotely or by satellite, later saying that he had not expected to win.

Trump used the opportunity to gloat in a released statement.

“If they keep with the current ridiculous formula, it will only get worse—if that’s possible,” he said.

“… These television people spend all their time thinking about how to promote the Democrat Party, which is destroying our Country, and cancel Conservatives and Republicans,” he added. “That formula certainly hasn’t worked very well for The Academy!”
