Seen, Read, Heard
2019 is nearly over. Here’s what news broke through in Morning Consult polls.
Morning Consult was in the field nearly every week in 2019, asking roughly 90,000 registered voters over the course of the year how much they’d seen, read or heard about more than 230 current events. Not all news resonated the same. Here’s the share of voters who heard “a lot” about 99 of the events we thought were most noteworthy, and how the news penetrated along party lines.
