Nobody knows what the average age of an AI voter is because neither a phone call nor text message carry any information regarding the senders age (thank goodness!) And if AI has commissioned any polls to study this stuff (I doubt it, they don't seem to learn anything from the data they do have) they aren't sharing the info.Originally Posted by CharmOffensive;3853475;
On the other hand there is significant public data about the AI viewership. They are much older - heavy in the 30's and 40's demographic. For the last several years the show has been loosing younger viewers. Or maybe they are keeping the same viewers and the audience is just aging.
Of course the often overlooked factor here is that it's not so much the number and age of the voters that matter, as much as who is going to buy an unlimited AT&T text plan and vote for two hours straight. Those are the deciders. And they are not all teenagers with nothing better to do. For the older kids, AI is their parent's program and therefore uncool. The power voters are just as likely core AI fans and people who strongly identify with one contestant (like last year's Glamberts and Kris Allen power texters).
