> More Following ‘Fiscal Cliff’ Debate Than Petraeus Investigation >
> In a busy news week, more Americans say they followed the debate over the “fiscal cliff” very closely than the investigations into the Libya embassy attack, renewed violence in the Middle East or the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus after the FBI discovered he was engaging in an extra-marital affair. Nearly identical percentages of Republicans (36%) and Democrats (35%) say they very closely followed the debate over the automatic spending cuts and tax increases that will take effect at the beginning of next year unless the president and Congress act. >

> The ‘Fiscal Cliff’ and Public Opinion
>
> As President Obama and congressional leaders begin negotiations to avert the so-called “fiscal cliff,” they do so against a backdrop in which a majority of Americans are divided about how to reduce the deficit and do not believe both sides will reach a deal. The looming fiscal cliff deadline has echoes of the battle over raising the debt limit in 2011 which soured public opinion about how both parties dealt with the issue. >

> Positive Media Coverage of Obama Surged During Last Week of Campaign >
> In the final week of the 2012 presidential campaign, Barack Obama enjoyed his most positive run of news coverage in months. Much of the surge in positive coverage was tied to Obama’s strategic position, including improving opinion polls and electoral math. Positive assessments of his response to Superstorm Sandy did not appear to be a major factor. >

> No Reversal in Decline of Marriage
>
> The recent decline in the number of Americans getting married shows no signs of reversing. In 2011, 4.2 million adults were newly married, about the same number as in 2010 and sharply lower than the 4.5 million newlyweds estimated in 2008. Marriage increasingly is being replaced by cohabitation, single-person households and other adult living arrangements. >

> 20 – Many Expect At Least 20 at Thanksgiving Meal
>
> About nine-in-ten adults (89%) said they would be having a Thanksgiving meal with members of their family — and not just one or two. Among those who said they would be sharing a drumstick with family, more than six-in-ten (62%) said that ten or more relatives would be at that Thanksgiving meal — and a quarter (27%) said there would be 20 or more. Overall, the typical host would be setting places for 12 family members. >
