Six in 10 Americans tuned in live to the presidential inauguration ceremonies on Tuesday.
That's somewhere north of 180 million people.
And once again, Obama is more in tune with the public than the villagers:
[C]lose to half -- 46% -- say Obama's speech was "excellent." That compares with a 25% excellent rating for Bush's 2005 inauguration speech. Another 35% say Obama's speech was good, while only 15% consider it "just okay" or worse.
So 81% liked the speech, half of them very much.
