What if social media told the story of the 2012 Presidential election? At this point President Obama seems to have a pretty clear advantage across the board in terms of followers,likes, and fans. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, President Obama’s 2008 election campaign leveraged social media to help win the election; so to be fair the President had a nice head start on his Republican opponents. Interestingly enough, although Herman Cain is no longer running for the Republican nomination his web traffic is through the roof amidst his affair allegations; trumping even the President. I guess that goes to show you the power of gossip on the web.
