Who cares?

Echidne points out how few people are even aware of the "hot topics" in the political realm; a Pew poll found that only a tiny percentage of people were on top of such news as the Tom Delay investigations or details of the filibuster debate. This should be a caution to those who make much of the break-down of opinion (among those who have one), or who think that such issues will come back to haunt the politicians involved... Not everybody is a political hobbyist, and the challenge to those of us who feel strongly is to convince the rest that such matters have any impact on their lives at all.
