The Nancy Pelosi-Chuck Schumer response beats Donald Trump lie-filled Oval Office Address in early ratings results, according to Fox News’ Michael Mulvihill.
The results shows many people tuned out what Trump had to say about his government shutdown over a made-up border crisis. They were more interested in what the Democratic leaders had to say.
Fox Sports Executive Vice President Michael Mulvihill tweeted the preliminary results that showed Democrats with a two-point edge over Trump.
Combined overnight ratings of seven national networks:
9-9:15, including President Trump’s address to the nation: 28.1 rating / 45 share
9:15-9:30, including Pelosi/Schumer response: 29.3 rating / 47 share

Deadline reports that the early numbers show the Democratic leaders’ response beat Trump by 26 percent on CNN and 15 percent on MSNBC.
Trump’s response and the Pelosi-Schumer response got an equal number of viewers on Fox News, Deadline reports.
In other words, mission not accomplished by Donald Trump.
