Don't have info on voters at hand, but Pew regularly asks questions about news consumption. E.g.:


As of Jan 11, 60% of public gets election news on TV. 43% have watched a debate - an audience that skews older. 38% get campaign news from cable TV. 24% get it from the Internet.

Soooo....most people don't watch cable news as much as my household does, but the number of people who've never watched a candidate on TV, a group that includes you as I recall, is small.
