The information comes from the weekly News Interest Index survey. Just over half (53%) of the public says there has been too much coverage of Obama’s family and personal life, while 40% say the amount of coverage has been about right. Just 4% say there has been too little on this topic.
But the study also found that the public believes news organizations are devoting the right amount of coverage to Obama’s leadership style and the way he is managing his job. But again, his policy proposals are getting “too little” coverage, 27% say, while 58% say it’s the “right amount.”
