Fox News Poll: Majority says Musk buying Twitter is #notabigdeal

Elon Musk’s $44 billion takeover of Twitter is not a big deal to a 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 phase majorities of most demographic and political groups, with independents being especially indifferent (70% doesn’t matter).

Overall, 36% think the Musk-Twitter deal matters (20% a great deal, 16% some).

When it comes to the outcome of the sale, more voters think it is a good thing rather than a bad thing by 14 points (44% good vs. 30% bad).
