NRA-ILA has taken to asking poll questions lately in each edition of the Grassroot Alerts, which I think is kind of cool. In the most recent edition, the third question was where do you (or I) primarily get our political information; which you had three choices for. Choice one was TV/Radio, choice 2 was print newspapers, and choice 3 was Internet. I chose internet, because that’s my primary source of information for just about everything these days, including political info. So I was somewhat surprised when I saw the resulting graphic of the choices:
Honestly, I was surprised to see the internet number at only 40%, I guess I assumed that it would be around 60% or so got their primary political info from the web. I think that it in part speaks to generational differences, since I’m part of the generation that has literally grown up online, it would stand to reason that I’d go to the internet before TV or print newspapers. I mean, I read the Wall St. Journal every day, and it’s been years since I held a paper copy of it in my hand.
