Gipper 1

Obama 0

by Mike Gallagher - January 23rd, 2009 -

After the cultural explosion in America that celebrated this week’s presidential inauguration, could there be any doubt that this would have been the most-watched inaugural ceremony in history?

It wasn’t ...

That honor goes to President Ronald Reagan’s inauguration in 1981 which drew millions more viewers than President Obama’s (41.8 million versus 37.8, according to Nielsen).

When you factor in the increase in population, 303 million in 2009 versus 234 million in 1983, the Magic Marxist Messiah only drew 70% of the audience that Ronald Reagan drew.

I wonder why?

Or if it even matters?
