Some surprising apathy

According to a poll at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's online home, 54% of respondents plan to "ignore" today's presidential inauguration.

Wow. I understand internets polls are by definition pretty unscientific but still, it's the result of more than 6,500 replies (at the moment).

I don't know what that says about the JSOnline's readership, or how many of those 3,500 people can't stand Barack Obama or can't stand politics or the presidency in general — or what — but it's remarkable.

Could it be that those people are working and have no choice but ti ignore the swearing in?
