Less than 10 million people watched the second GOP debate in September, according to Breitbart.
During the first debate, where former President Donald Trump was not present, Nielsen ratings showed some 12.8 million people tuned in to watch. That number dropped to less than 10 million during the second debate, at roughly 9.3 million total.
