Paul Finds Support Online
May 22, 2007
Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) "may be barely registering in public opinion polls, but his supporters are making their presence known on the Internet," reports the New York Times. "They were particularly energized after the second Republican debate, held last week in South Carolina."
Following his debate performance, Paul’s followers "responded with support, in all the ways by which success is measured in cyberspace: in online polls about who won the debate, in the numbers of friends on MySpace and viewings of videos on YouTube. His was the most-searched name on Technorati, ahead of Paris Hilton’s."
