Obama dwarfs Clinton on Facebook
Obama vs. Hillary. The political pundits dig through the daily spin of our lovable candidates. They argue over substance versus rhetoric, carisma versus experience. They looks at the polls and data to try and figure out who is more popular and where they are winning. But all they got to do is look at Facebook. The almighty social network most popular with the 15 - 30 cohort presents us with some startling data.
Facebook has a feature where you can become a 'fan' of a something or someone. Both Obama and Clinton have 'fan pages'. Clinton clocks in at 139,112 supporters while Obama is at 720,308 (these numbers are of 10:15 am PST). Obama dwarfs Clinton. Obviously, these numbers reflect a specific demographic but they are telling nonetheless.
