Just 47 percent are following the filibuster debate closely, and only 16 percent are following it "very closely," an ABC News/Washington Post poll finds. That's lower than the level of attention paid to a variety of other issues in recent years.
Interest is somewhat higher than it's been for inside-the-beltway topics such as the ethics complaints against House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (36 percent closely following) and campaign finance reform at the beginning of 2002 (37 percent). But it's been far higher on a range of other issues, including, for example, the Enron collapse (64 percent), the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal (75 percent) or the SARS virus (74 percent).
