Barack Obama’s popularity
Internet searchers looking for Obama
I suppose this is a magnified reflection of what is happening in the polls in the USA, even though Gallup suggests a narrowing of the gap, but of the top 100 searches on Google today (Stateside) 18% of them are looking for Barack Obama, and precisely NONE are looking for John McCain. (Britney Spears doesn’t even get a mention – for a change)
Will the internet trends prove more reliable than traditional polling methods? Is the republican goose well and truly cooked?
