125_obama_mccain_freinds.jpgAlthough the latest polls are indicating an almost dead heat between presidential candidate Barack Obama and John McCain, the Democratic nominee is trouncing the old ‘Maverick’ online: “On MySpace, Obama leads McCain more than seven-fold; Obama lists 390,279 friends to McCain’s 53,259. The gap is almost similar on Facebook. Obama supporters number at 928,905 while McCain’s clock in at 139,749. And on YouTube, it’s almost as if Obama and McCain operate in two separate layers of the atmosphere. McCain’s channel, which has posted 219 videos, has been viewed a little over 4 million times. Obama’s channel, which has posted 1,102 videos, has been viewed 51.1 million times.” |WaPo|
