I’m about ready to do the second round of coding of Democratic and Republican web campaigning with my colleague Cristian Vaccari, so I’ve enjoyed a couple of pieces recently on the perennial question: who’s ahead online?
1. Tea Party vs. Netroots
Micah Sifry at TechPresident has a nuanced analysis of both the active and the latent base of the left and the right in the U.S.
2. The ever-changing Christine O’Donnell
Right-wing Republican Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell has been interesting to watch online, partially because she has had a lot of success with very simple tools (a pet point of mine), partially because her web presence is constantly changing.
3. You got it wrong.
David Karpf has provided good ongoing critical commentary of the press coverage in the area.
