Skip to comments.Big Democrat Debate Ratings Really Bad News For Mini-Mike
Posted on 02/20/2020 3:35:46 PM PST by EyesOfTX
Oh, my, that wasnt what Mr. Excitement wanted to hear at all: Wednesday nights televised debate that featured the mega-billionaire being pummeled repeatedly by his Democrat opponents drew a record audience of 33.5 million, according to Nielsen Fast National Data.
No doubt when Bloomberg was being safely tucked into his lush bed last night by his man-servant Jeeves, the former New York City Mayor was placating himself over his dismal performance with the thought that, hey, nobody watches these things, anyway. So, no harm, no foul, right?
Mr. Excitement no doubt figured that he could make up for what little real harm had been done to his candidacy by just pumping out another $200 million or so in additional campaign ads, and all would be well. But that would have worked for the 8-12 million viewers these things normally attract. This new, actual number likely costs Bloomberg another $200 million just to get back where he was when the slaughter began.
At this rate, Mini-Mike is going to find himself buying up so many ad placements that he starts to crowd other, down-ballot candidates out of the market. And heres the thing: TV and social media advertising comes with a very notorious and very real law of diminishing returns. The more you run, the less benefit you derive from them. And at some point, as your ad saturation reaches the point of consumer annoyance, you can actually begin to alienate people who might otherwise become potential voters.
Throughout his adult life, Mr. Excitement has left a long, well-documented trail of being able to just buy himself out of sticky situations. His disastrous showing in last nights debate, in front of what turned out to be the partys biggest audience of the campaign season, may turn out to be an exception to that longstanding rule.
Oh, the problems of billionaire presidential candidates.
That is all.
Hope it’s true! Bloomberg has spent more than $400 Million and has ZERO delegates. At this rate he will win dumb SOB of the year for sure.
Poor Jeb Bush has never gotten over it, and all he lost was a measly hundred million!
I Like That Nickname!
Keep On Spending Your Money Mini Mike! LOL
Where I am his commercials have reached the saturation level and beyond, he is over doing it and the ads themselves are annoying and redundant
He is doing himself no favors, makes me smile just thinking about it...
And the double benefit os he is as it says in the post buying up all the air time that others in his party could be using to promote further lies from the Dems
I love it when a plan comes together
Well, he’ll just have to buy some better ones then!
“And at some point, as your ad saturation reaches the point of consumer annoyance,”
Not that I would have voted for him anyway, but yes, he hit annoyance level earlier this week.
.....be my guest......glad you liked it......
He should spend 5 or 10 if he wants it. $60 Billion Net Worth and 74 years old?
Times a wastin’ and he’s not spending fast enough to enjoy 10% of his money.
He's 78, the same as Bernie and they've both had heart surgeries.
He wants to beat Jeb!’s record of 50,000,000 per delegate.
So far he is crushing Jeb! which was previously not thought to be possible!
OK, so $60 billion at even a lousy 3.5% return means he can spend $1.8 billion a year and stay even. It’s no big deal for him to spend a couple of billion on this.
Sounds like I’m lucky I don’t watch TV though.
BUMP! Thanks for your great work.
Not a dime was his and yeb probably stole another $100 million.
Minimike doesn’t have to “win” a single primary. He just has to keep Comrade Sanders from having a majority of delegates when he goes into the convention. Then the Party Poohbahs decide and the delegate counts are dust.
My wife watches videos (shows) from halfway around the world in a language that I can’t even understand. Guess who keeps butting-in, in English?
