Poll Shows Most Americans Aren’t Paying Attention to Scandals

Following last week’s trifecta of scandals: Benghazi talking points, IRS targeting and DOJ phone taps, it turns out most Americans don’t give a damn. Late last week, the Pew Research Center surveyed a little more than 1,000 people and asked them if they are following the stories very closely.

26% said they are very closely following the IRS story; 25% are closely following the Benghazi investigation and just 16% are very closely following news about the Justice Department subpoenaing AP reporters’ phone records.

The numbers are greater if you’re a republican and less if you’re a democrat.
