36. I have a degree in public speaking and still teach it occasionally

Decades ago the attention span of most adults was about 40 to 45 minutes at one time for something like a speech. Today it is more like 30 minutes max. That's why most churches won't do a sermon more than about 15 minutes. YOU LOSE PEOPLE!

Going two hours...I guarantee that after 20 minutes most tune out. It is just human nature. People go to these rallies to see what it's like, to say they say the Pres, etc. But nobody is listening intently for 2 hours.
