The Pew Research Center surveyed Americans about their main sources of campaign news, and apparently counted which news sources they mentioned as their first or second response. Here are the percentages for each source, in 2004 and 2008:
|Oct. 2004||Oct. 2008|
Pretty striking, it seems to me; and, the Internet has a huge edge over newspapers among younger respondents (49-17% for 18-to-29-year-olds, 37%-23% for 30-to-49-year-olds). Check out all the data on the Pew site; also, please let me know if you can find the text of the question, which I always prefer to include when possible.
Thanks to InstaPundit for the pointer.
