More Democrats than Republicans have a positive view about the race between President Obama and Mitt Romney, now that the confetti has been swept up from the political conventions.
A new Pew Research Center poll finds 66% of Democrats say the presidential campaign is interesting, while 27% describe it as dull. Among Republicans, 50% describe the Obama vs. Romney race as interesting compared with 45% who say it's dull.
On the question of whether the presidential race is informative, more than two-thirds of Democrats say it is compared with 49% of Republicans.
At this point in the presidential race four years ago, about 75% of Democrats and Republicans said the campaign between Obama and Republican John McCain was interesting.
The Pew survey was taken Friday through Sunday. The Democratic convention in Charlotte concluded Sept. 6. Republicans met for three days in late August in Tampa.
