Debates Help Fuel Strong Interest in 2016 Campaign

Debates Help Fuel Strong Interest in 2016 Campaign. Pew Research Center. December 14, 2015.

The national survey finds that the public is highly engaged by the 2016 campaign. Fully 74% of Americans say they have given a lot or some thought to the candidates, higher than the shares saying this at comparable points in the past two presidential campaigns. The presidential debates clearly have been a hit with the public. Nearly seven-in-ten (69%) say they have watched at least some of the televised debates between the candidates. In December 2007, just 43% reported watching any of the debates. [Note: contains copyrighted material].
