Last Monday, Al Gore's Alliance for Climate Protection launched its first television ad as part of a three-year, $300 million campaign to scare Americans into believing the world is coming to an end if we don't stop burning fossil fuels.
Data compiled by online communcations research company MediaCurves.com indicated that only young people and Democrats responded favorably to the section of the ad dealing specifically with global warming, while older people, Independents, and Republicans seemed less impressed.
The embedded video to the right shows responses of the participants by age, while the video below the fold is separated by political affiliation (h/t Rasmussen Reports):
Pay attention to what happens in both videos as the subject moves to global warming. In the first video, notice how only the 18 to 25-year-old bar goes up at that point, while the other three age group lines decline.
As for party affiliation, watch how the Democrat line goes up, the Republican line plummets, and the Independent line dips slightly.
Seem like Al and his group of not-so merry men and women are preaching to the choir?
