US President Donald Trump, who delivered the keynote speech at the Republican convention on Thursday, August 27, was slightly defeated by his rival in the upcoming presidential election, Democrat Joseph Biden, who delivered a similar speech the week before. This is evidenced by data from the Nielsen company.
According to the company, Biden is ahead of Trump by about 3%. His speech at the Democratic convention was watched by 24.6 million viewers, and the last hour of the broadcast of the Republican convention, when Trump spoke, was watched by 23.8 million.
At the same time, it is specified that these calculations relate only to those viewers who watched the performance of the US presidential candidates on television and on cable channels. However, numerous viewers of Internet broadcasts were not taken into account, writes RIA Novosti.
Republicans officially nominated US President Donald Trump on August 24 for a second term. On August 27, he officially agreed to stand as a candidate for the upcoming elections.
Former US Vice President Joe Biden was confirmed last week by Democratic delegates. Trump believes that Biden can win the presidential elections only by rigging them.
At the same time, according to the latest polls, 50% of Americans are ready to vote for Biden, about 46% for Trump.
The US presidential election is scheduled for November 3.
