Democrats Struggle to Get 30 People to Watch Their Health Care Protest in Colorado

Around 30 people watched an event that featured the DNC Chair and a possible 2020 presidential candidate on Facebook Live on Tuesday.

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez and John Hickenlooper, the Democratic Governor of Colorado and possible 2020 presidential candidate, participated in a “Drive for Our Lives” bus tour stop in Denver on Tuesday.

Sadly for these Democrats, however, hardly anyone watched their event.

The “Drive for Our Lives” was billed as a press conference to rally community leaders and activists to voice their opposition to Republican attempts to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Between the Save My Care’s Facebook Livestream and the Colorado Democrats’ Facebook Livestream of the event, just 29 people total watched the Perez speech live.

Perez performed best on the Save My Care’s Facebook Livestream with 21 people watching Perez at the start of speech, but that quickly dropped into the teens by the time Perez finished his speech.

The Colorado Democratic Party’s Facebook Livestream hosted just seven people watching Perez.

Hickenlooper faired a little better than Perez with 23 viewers watching his speech on the Save My Care’s Facebook Livestream.

This isn’t the first time that Democrats have struggled to get people to watch their events. The Washington Free Beacon reported in July how an event that featured Perez, DNC Vice Chair Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) (another possible 2020 candidate) all drew 138 YouTube viewers.
