The numbers are in and now we know that Joe Biden’s SOTU speech was the worst-rated one in history.

Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech was the lowest-rated presidential SOTU in history and earned ten million fewer viewers than the viewership from his 2022 speech, according to Nielsen data.

The Nielsen numbers were reported by Deadline on Wednesday and found that the ratings experienced a fall of one-third.

The speech aired across 16 TV networks and saw an estimated 27.3 million viewers, compared to 38.2 million for last year’s viewership. It was also the lowest numbers for a SOTU for thirty years.

The Associated Press noted the only smaller audience since 1993 was recorded in 2021 with Biden’s very first address to congress which saw 26.9 million viewers. But that speech was not officially a State of the Union speech, since he had just taken office a few months earlier.

In the immediate aftermath of the speech we learned that Biden received the lowest “very positive” ratings in SOTU history.

According to CNN’s post speech survey, only 38 percent felt “very positive” about Biden’s speech. That is the lowest of any president ever surveyed – including Donald Trump.

Trump’s lowest rating, for instance was his low of 54 percent who felt “very positive” about his SOTU speech.

It is no surprise, of course.

Joe Biden issued more lies in his speech than any president in history.
