    While the story behind Trayvon Martin‘s shooting death continues to grab headlines, interest in the case is sharply divided along partisan and racial lines, according to a new study by Pew Research Center.

    Far more Republicans (56%) than Democrats (25%) say there has been too much coverage of Martin’s death, according to Pew, which surveyed a “nationally representative sample of 1,000 adults” last Thursday through Sunday about top new stories.
