This week I decided to look at whether supporters of various political parties had different news consumption patterns and compare them to undecided voters. To do this I'm going back to the Canadian Election Study 2011 data. Obviously, things may have changed since then, but this is the most current raw data source I have for this question. 

The first question I thought I'd look at is how much time people spent consuming news (Question 81 in the Post Election Survey(PES)) broken down by party self-identification.
