At the Washington Times, Jennifer Harper notes a recent survey indicating that most people don’t read political blogs. I would have considered this a “bottom of the news” story, along the lines of “Most Don’t Run Marathons,” or “Most Don’t Attend Operas.” Around half the population doesn’t bother to vote in off-year elections, so I’m not surprised that they aren’t spending their spare time poring over political blogs.
What I think is notable is how many people do find political blogs worthwhile. Jennifer was kind enough to cite Power Line as an example of a widely-read site, and called me to ask why I think people read us. After being stumped momentarily, I ventured some guesses, which she edited in reasonably coherent fashion. Whatever the reasons, we are grateful to everyone who reads and enjoys our site.
