Television ratings for the opening nights of this weeks Democratic National Convention have been some of the lowest in years. The people who make a living covering and analyzing politics will be taking a long hard look trying to figure out the reasons why. Could it be that the virtual nature of this weeks convention has been found to be too boring for the casual television viewer, Or could it be the constant interruptions of political analysts who tell us what we just heard from convention speakers. Or could it be that the lack of any suspense about who the party’s white house nominee will be that’s to blame. I think there may be another reason. I wonder if a significant and growing number of people in the U.s. are just tired of the whole process and wish it would end soon. America’s television viewers will have another chance to try to find something else to watch if they choose to do so, during the Republican national convention next week. That’s the way I see it.
