Gun control news tops Super Bowl news

News on the gun control debate was followed last week by more Americans than any other subject, according to a Pew Research survey. From Jan. 31-Feb. 3 the gun debate was followed "very closely" by 42 percent of respondents. Nearly the same number (43%) followed President Obama's gun regulation proposals from Jan. 17-Jan. 20.

From Pew:

Equal percentages of Republicans and Democrats say they followed news about the gun control debate very closely (49% each); fewer independents followed the story (32% very closely). Interest in the gun debate outpaced interest in economic news (33% very closely) as well as interest in news about immigration policy (23% very closely), a hostage situation in Alabama (20% very closely), and the Super Bowl (18%).
