Approximately 60% of Americans surveyed by Pew are "exhausted" by the amount of election coverage, while 39% say that they like all of the coverage. 

For those not following the election closely, 69% say that they are worn out of the coverage, compared to those actively following the election where 41% feel fatigued.
