Historic! 300 Million Americans Avoid Obama’s State of the Union as Ratings Plummet

Posted by on Jan 21, 2015 at 5:15 pm

Lowest ratings in 15 years. Like the overwhelming majority of Americans, we avoided it.

Television viewership for President Obama’s State of the Union address fell to a 15-year low, according to numbers from Nielsen.

The hour and fiftenn minute-long speech drew an average of 31.7 million viewers on broadcast and cable networks Tuesday, the measurement firm said.

The combined figure is down about 5% from last year’s State of the Union address, which clocked in at 33.3 million.

This year’s count, which does not include people who streamed the event online, was the lowest since President Clinton’s final State of the Union in 2000. That speech pulled in just under 31.5 million viewers.

Nielsen’s combined tally included networks ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, Al Jazeera America, Azteca, CNN, Fox Business Network, Fox News Channel, Galavision, MSNBC, MundoFox and Univision.

Only one more to endure from this clown. His numbers, like his credibility, have deeply eroded during his failed presidency.

Viewership for Obama’s State of the Union addresses has been in decline since 2009, when he drew 52.4 million television viewers. 48.0 million watched on television in 2010, 42.8 million in 2011, 37.8 million in 2012 and 33.5 million in 2013.

Just wait for the reaction:

    I refuse to look at or listen to him. Have avoided the lying sociopath for some time. I read the reviews of his BS, but audio or visual contact makes me sick to my stomach.

    I guess this means that the Next time we hear from Obama when he uses his pen and phone to “legislate something unilaterally,” he will be telling us he is doing on behalf of the millions of America who did not watch his SOTU speech.

    Many of us learned early on that with this guy you don’t listen to what he says because he’s a pathological liar. You watch what he does if you want to know what he really thinks.

    I hate the very sound of his voice so much that I won’t even listen to sound bites of him on Rush Limbaugh.
