New poll shows the more education you have, the more you hate the Comcast-TWC merger

Comcast Time Warner Cable Merger Poll

Does being more educated actually give you more common sense? A new Reuters poll finds that while Americans as a whole dislike the idea of a merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable, people who have more education dislike the merger even more than people who are less educated. 

In all, Reuters found that 62% of people with at least college degrees thought the merger was a bad idea, versus 57% of people with some college experience and 42% of people who had no college experience. In terms of the entire population, Reuters found that 52% of all Americans thought the Comcast-TWC merger would be bad for consumers while a measly 22% said that it would be good for consumers.

It isn’t at all surprising that most Americans take a dim view of the Comcast-TWC merger, as at least five different customer satisfaction surveys released over the last year have shown that both companies enjoy truly horrendous customer satisfaction ratings.

In fact, its immense popularity with its own customers may be why Comcast has focussed most of its efforts so far not on pitching the merger to the general public but on greasing palms on Capitol Hill. Comcast has already made $2 million in campaign contributions for the 2014 election cycle so far and last year it spent a whopping $19 million on lobbying lawmakers and regulators, so it looks like the cable giant might muscle its merger through even without high public approval.
