A Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 62% of registered voters did not watch the second two hearings from the commission.
Over 2,000 voters were polled. Of those who didn’t vote in 2020, 75% reported they didn’t watch, while 78% of voters for Donald Trump that same year didn’t, either. A majority of those who voted for President Joe Biden also did not watch or only reported watching parts of the hearings, with 19% reporting they watched both hearings on June 13 and 16.
The majority of viewers who did not watch the hearings were baby boomers. More men watched the hearings than women, and the highest amount of viewers came from the South.
A majority of Democratic, independent, and Republican voters reported that they did not watch the hearings.
This is a decrease from the 30% of voters who reported they either saw, read, or heard “a lot” about the first hearing on June 9. At the time, it had double the TV audience of the first three games of the NBA Finals.
