After all the fuss about Obama's hesitant debate and Romney's smooth-talking win - it was really more a case of the incumbent President being realistic thanks to 4 years in the job and a flashy ****** (think of your own word) dazzling the crowds with empty, naive promises. There's some good news for the Obama campaign, in a recent Google Survey: "Who's Better at Social Media and Online Persuasion: Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?" Obama comes out as the clear winner (He was probably only a bit tired during the debate because of having to actually work as President of the US of A as well as trot round the campaign trail.)
Querying 2,500 Internet users nationwide, a little over 64 percent of those polled chose the incumbent president over the Republican candidate, the exception being within the category of Americans over the age of 64. Exploring the demographics a little deeper www.google.com/insights/consumersurveys, the survey showed:
Suburban areas (38 percent) picked Romney more than urban areas (38.8 percent vs. 31.0 percent);
Among people earning $25,000-$49,000, those in rural areas picked Romney more than those in urban areas (47.5 percent vs. 30.8 percent);
Among people earning $25,000-$49,000, those in the South picked Romney more than those in the Northeast. (45.1 percent vs. 27.5); and
Age affected how people picked Romney and, with one exception, the younger the respondents, the less likely that group was to vote for Romney — 27.3 percent of those ages 18-24 picked Romney over Obama.
Remember American folks - every vote counts so why not vote for the real underdog and someone willing to try something different than the usual front-man for big US business - Gary Johnson.
