According to the New York Times, people don't care about Wills and Kate.
How fascinated are Americans with Prince William’s and Kate Middleton’s nuptials next week? According to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll, not very. Only 6 percent have been following news about the wedding very closely, and an additional 22 percent are following it somewhat closely.
If people don't care, why won't the media shut up about it?
My guess is that people really do care (much as it saddens me), but they didn't want to tell the pollsters that. Also, the 22 percent of respondents who responded that they were following it "somewhat closely" are probably following this news much more closely than they would a presidential election.
