While mainstream journalists devoted much time and resources to cover the ongoing Mueller investigation and Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony, the media is starting to recognize the disconnect between their agenda and voters. Journalists are noting through reporting on polling and interviews with voters that the American people have either moved on or never cared in the first place.
A headline in The Atlantic leading up to the testimony read, “Washington can’t wait for Mueller. Voters have moved on.”
The Washington Times reported comments from a Democratic presidential hopeful: “Sen. Elizabeth Warren: Voters don’t care about Mueller report.”
The Hill interviewed pollster Emily Ekins and reported that “Many Americans ‘just don’t care that much’ about Trump investigations, says pollster”.
A recent Bloomberg headline: “Real people never cared about the Mueller report”
USA Today reported: “As the Mueller report looms, Democrats find voters would rather talk ‘kitchen-table’ issues”.
