2012 Presidential Election Social Media Numbers

Posted by on September 2, 2012 | Comments Off on 2012 Presidential Election Social Media Numbers

If poll numbers are to follow social network numbers, then this election could be one hard fought online. In the New Mexico Gubernatorial Race of 2010, there was a clear difference between a candidate who interacted with their prospective constituents online and one who didn’t; still social media numbers in that case showed the opposite regarding which candidate was able to rally supporters online and it was those numbers that predicted the victor.

In this race both demographics are stacked to the left. Above from, Alexa, the largest most trusted web traffic ranking site online, is today’s three month look back at where the Presidential candidates rank in world wide web reach.

Though most all numbers, like claims and campaign promises can be altered, these digits do tell a story about each campaign, their approach, their demographics, and perhaps their standing in the race.

Below are the present day (moment) stats of your candidates for President of the United States in a scant 65 days. Check-in with your candidates, your choices on their Twitter and Facebook accounts. Decide what’s worth noting to you as you step into a voting booth on Nov. 6.

Notable to this blogette are not only the level of interactions between the campaigns and online voters but the number of followers and follows on both accounts.

Votes may not translate from “friends” or “like” totals, but should they?

If eligible voter turnout in this election reaches more than the 57.1% the census reported for the 2008 race, and the “legitimate” social network following built on either side of the aisle cast their vote, social media will predict the outcome.
