Study: People Are So Tired of the Election They Don't Even Wanna Fight About It Anymore on Facebook 10/27/16 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

It’s official. People are sick of the election. I know this because a new Pew poll out is reporting that people are so sick and tired of Trump and Hillary that they don’t even want to fight about it on social media! Now, if people are not willing to fight about it on Facebook, then you know that they are really sick of it, because people will fight for months about stuff on there. Heck, we spent a week discussing if a dress was blue or black. The study showed that a third of Americans on social media are worn out by all the politics on their social feeds, 80% of them said they try to ignore posts they disagree with. Others said they’re blocking people hiding posts from followers on social sites that post a lot of political information. Six in ten said discussing politics with someone they disagreed with was stressful. The good news is that the election is almost over and there is no way the 2020 election will be as crazy, absurd as this one, so maybe by then you’ll be cooled down enough over this one to add your friends back to Facebook. I’m Chad Whittle and annoy your Facebook friends by posting this political post of A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
