6:49 am
to endorse the nominee and playing gear rised melania speech and democrats the bernie supporters and the e-mails. for the average delegate, none of this happened. they were dancing and hopeful for their candidates. despite lots of problems, inside the conventions, i can tell you that the mood was positive. >> i got a kick out of all the balloons. that was my favorite part. >> i told my husband, new rule, every birthday, anniversary, i want balloon drop. >> you didn't grab one for a souvenir. >> they don't hold up well. >> there were so many speakers. what stood out to you. >> again, similarities at both conventions. we had the parents of children who died in the line of duty give very moving speeches. for the republicans, patricia
6:50 am
smith whose son was killed in the attack in benghazi. she spoke and was moving. at the democratic convention, khizr khan gave a speech that many are talking about. he waved that copy of the constitution around. then aside from the obvious big name speeches like barack obama, at the republican convention chris christie's indictment of clinton and laid out the case against her and asking the audience guilty or not guilty and the entire arena shouted guilty and lock her up. that was an effective speech with the crowd. on the democratic side i would say that michael bloomberg, might be surprising, he came out and said i'm a new yorker and businessman and i can tell you trump is a con artist. bloom burke is not necessarily known for being an effective speaker, kind of surprising but he had a lot of zingers in his speech and the crowd ate it up. those would be two that i would
6:51 am
recommend. >> bloomberg, many considered he would run for president. which party do you think had the better convention? >> well, you know, it's hard to say. there are ways to measure the conventions. one way is to say who had the most viewers. according to nielson ratings, trump's big acceptance speech had more viewers than clinton's acceptance speech. about a million viewers more. over four days of the convention, democrats had about 17 million more total viewers. the so, depending on how you want to look at it, either convention won. the second way is to look at the post convention polls. we know donald trump got a small boost in the polls after the republican convention. i have to say, though, i think hillary will get a larger boost than trump did. she went after independents and moderate republicans and she had sanders there to help win over the progressives. i think she is poised for a much larger post convention,
6:52 am
double digits. we will know soon enough. we will get new poll numbers this week and see which convention moved the most. >> thanks so much, melissa.
