Pew: Substantially more Democrats than Republicans view presidential campaign as interesting
A new Pew Research poll finds that substantially more Democrats than Republicans view the campaign as interesting and informative in the wake of the party conventions.
Key findings: 66% of Democrats say the presidential campaign is interesting while just 27% say it is dull. Among Republicans 50% say it is interesting while 45% describe it as dull. The gap is about as wide in opinions about whether the presidential campaign is informative – 68% of Democrats say it is informative, compared with 49% of Republicans.
Four years ago, nearly identical percentages of Republicans (75%) and Democrats (74%) said the campaign was interesting. And similar majorities of both groups viewed the campaign as informative (62% of Republicans and 59% of Democrats).
