(PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER) A majority of Americans aren’t following the trial of a West Philadelphia abortion doctor accused of killing babies born during illegal late-term abortions, a new poll says.

The Gallup poll released this morning found that just 25 percent of those surveyed said they were following the case of Kermit Gosnell “very” or “somewhat” closely. Fifty-four percent of people said they weren’t following the case at all.

Republicans, people with pro-life views and adults older than age 55 were most likely to be following the trial. And nearly half of those following the trial say there hasn’t been enough news coverage of it.
