Obama Fatigue? Poll Shows Voters Tired

Ad Feedback

With three months to go before Election Day, nearly half of voters say they're tired of hearing about Sen. Barack Obama.

That's according to a new poll by the non partisan Pew Research Center. The study found that two thirds of Republicans, half of Independents, and a third of Democrats felt that way.

Researchers say Obama has dominated political news coverage for much of the year. And by a slight margin, people say that, recently, they have a less favorable rather than more favorable view of the Democratic nominee.

Meanwhile, almost four out of 10 people say they've heard too little about Republican candidate John McCain.

Nearly half of Republicans, four out of 10 Independents and a quarter of Democrats would like to hear more about the Arizona senator.

But Obama's ads seem to be having a favorable impact.

Almost 40 percent of those who are aware of Obama's commercials say they are mostly positive messages about the candidate. Only 13 percent characterize them as negative messages about McCain.

However, more than 30 percent see McCain's ads as negative messages about his opponent, with less than 20 percent describing them as positive ads.
