I'm not sure whether this is good news or bad news

According to Nielsen, fewer Americans watched Donald Trump's acceptance tirade speech than watched John McCain's in 2008.

I'm not sure whether this is good news or bad news. On one hand, it seems that most Americans weren't particularly interested in hearing what Donald Trump had to rave about say. But on the other, a great deal of the reason for Trump's success has been that Americans know so little about him.

Maybe if more Americans had been watching, more of them would have been frightened by what they saw. But given the Fall campaign, Hillary's capacity for bellowing, and the efficiency of the Democratic attack machine, I have a feeling they'll be hearing plenty before November 8.

The only question that concerns me is whether they'll believe it, coming from somebody else and whether the media will do a better job in the general election campaign of making folks aware of Trump's history and his lunacy than they did during the primaries.
