Rasmussen: 58% Say Too Much of Royal Wedding

Friday, Prince William of England will marry Catherine Middleton in what some are calling “the wedding of the century.” But stateside a majority of Americans think the media is paying too much attention to the royal wedding.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 58% of American Adults say the media is giving too much attention to tomorrow's nuptials. Twenty-nine percent (29%) say the level of attention is about right. Just three percent (3%) think the media is not paying enough attention to the royal wedding.

Thirty-four percent (34%) say they are at least somewhat likely to watch tomorrow's ceremony, with 15% who are Very Likely to do so. But 64% are unlikely to watch the royal wedding, including 29% who are Not At All Likely to watch.
