WASHINGTON - July 15 - According to a new poll released today, viewership of Fahrenheit 9/11 continues to grow with 11% of all voters now reporting they have seen Michael Moores film. This is nearly double the number of viewers since the July 4th weekend, when 6% reported having seen the movie.
An additional 33% intend to see Fahrenheit 9/11, which means that 44% of all voters in the 2004 Presidential election could be exposed to the film.
Movie-goers and intended movie-goers represent a broad and diverse slice of the electorate and spread across the country, including the so-called battleground states. Fully 1/3 of voters who have seen or intend to see the film self-identify as Bush voters. Forty percent of movie viewers and potential movie viewers reside in battleground states, 25% in the red states and 33% in the blue.
The poll, conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, captured data from 1000 likely voters fielded between July 10 July 13, with a margin of error of +/- 3 points.
