59% of young Web users read campaign news online

Most internet users do not go online for the sole purpose of learning about the campaign. 52% of web users say they “come across” campaign news and information when they are going online to do something else, according Pew Internet & American Life Project. This practice is particularly prevalent among younger web users: 59% of web users under age 30 come across campaign news online compared with 43% of those ages 50 and older.
