Elon Musk’s $44 billion takeover of Twitter isn’t a big deal for the majority of American voters, according to a new Fox News national poll released Wednesday.
The survey finds that Musk buying the tech giant doesn’t matter to 62% of registered voters, including 43% who say it doesn’t matter at all.
The acquisition of the social media platform fails to eliminate majorities across most demographic and political groups, with independents being particularly indifferent (70% doesn’t matter).
Overall, 36% think the Musk-Twitter deal is important (20% a lot, 16% a little).
