Obama, Paul Win Online Primaries


Posted January 3, 2008 - By Mike D'Alonzo

In an election with the impact of roughly a kindergarten straw poll, Barack Obama and Ron Paul have won the MySpace 'primaries' handily, beating out such luminaries as Hillary Clinton, Rudy Giuliani, and the "leave Britney alone" guy. Voters on the MySpace Impact political site were the voters, and many say they will actually vote in the real world.

Since a great majority of people on the internets are either hopeful, non-jaded youth, or crazy people, neither victory comes as a surprise. Oh, and also, the vote didn't require people to be of a legal voting age, which explains the relatively strong showings of Zac Efron (6 percent) and Mike Huckabee (16 percent.)
