Johnny: "Nearly every Democratic voter in the poll called the debates crucial to sorting out a record field of contenders. An overwhelming majority, 82%, said they'll be watching, and 86% said the debates will be important in determining which candidate they'll support." 31% of Americans identify as democrats in the most recent polls. There are 327 million people in the U.S. 23% of those are minors. So that leaves 77.81 million democrat adults. If 82% of those watch the democrat debates that is 63.8 million viewers. Want to place bets on whether ratings will be that high? I guess the ratings will reveal how many people lie to pollsters. P.S. - The most watched democrat debate in 2016 was 15.8 million viewers.
