2008 – The Year of the Web Election?

I’m not sure how much of the jockeying you’ve been following – but there has been an interesting topic I have been following with Republican candidate Ron Paul.

If you look at Paul’s number back in July from a USA Today/Gallup poll:

Neither former Virginia governor Jim Gilmore nor Rep. Ron Paul registered any support.

But, if you look at what online polls say – he’s much better off. (This from a USADaily article)

Polls that have been showing Ron Paul at 1% for months are slowly adjusting to reality with one poll showing Paul at 7.4% in New Hampshire. Paul’s campaign may prove that polling methods are obsolete.

So the interesting thing to me is that much of the mainstream media was so out of touch with reality and not giving the “internet people” their due justice. So it will be very interesting to see what comes of it.
