Cable news and social media bring too much attention to extremists — ignoring the vast majority.
For example, FOX wants Marjorie Taylor Greene on air because her wrong and stupid statements get ratings.
In reality …
- 75% of people in the U.S. never tweet.
- On an average weeknight in January, just 1% of U.S. adults watched primetime Fox News (2.2 million). 0.5% tuned into MSNBC (1.15 million).
- Nearly three times more Americans (56%) donated to charities during the pandemic than typically give money to politicians and parties (21%).
📊 One chart worth sharing: As polarized as America seems, Independents — who are somewhere in the middle — would be the biggest party.
- In Gallup’s 2021 polling, 29% of Americans identified as Democrats … 27% as Republicans … and 42% as independents.
