WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new survey from the Pew Research Center finds cable news is the top source of information on the presidential election campaign, followed by local TV news, network news, the Internet and local newspapers. Twitter, YouTube and Facebook were at the bottom of the list.

Fewer people are interested in following news about this year's campaign than in 2008, when both the Democratic and Republican parties had contested nomination fights.

Three-quarters say they get most of their campaign news from television, similar to previous years. But the share of people citing the Internet or newspapers as their primary source for news has declined since 2008.

Whether online, on TV or in print, just a quarter of Americans say they deeply enjoy keeping up with politics.
