Many surprises 11:54 PM EST

Not only is the sustained strength of Ron Paul's lead surprising to me, but what about Romney's anemic support? Remember this guy has over a million "likes" on Facebook, while Ron Paul has only about 400,000.

And where are all the Obama fans? He has almost 21.8 million likes.

Why is Bachmann doing so well? And Cain?

The Man

RON PAUL's THE MAN!

ok i voted

but then at bottom of my home page was a picture of Ron Paul, and it asked me if I liked him. There were over 1.5 million people who also liked him. I obviously clicked on like. Then i go to the website and its called rightchange.com, and I didn't see anything about the good doctor. I think they tricked me into liking rightchange.

Yeah, be careful with Facebook ads

Yeah, you have to be careful with Facebook ads. But they separate them pretty clearly from everything else. Just watch for it.

More votes and bumps, please; RP clears 6000 10:05pm EST

I'm stunned by this sustained multi-hour lead. Remember, Facebook has 500 million users, about 50% login every day. http://www.facebook.com/press/info.php?statistics

For every person that votes, many of their friends will see that activity on their news list. Now, this poll was created by a Tea Party group, so that explains the initial popularity of Paul, Bachmann and Cain, but it doesn't explain the sustained popularity, and it doesn't explain why Paul is dominating the others. I mean, by the rule of "6 degrees of separation", many people not affiliated with the tea party in any way should become aware of the poll very quickly. That is, all the friends, family and co-workers of anyone who votes in this poll will learn about it. Why are they not voting for Obama, Romney, et al?

Quite startling, really.

Big Bumpety Bump. This is

Big Bumpety Bump.

This is great news....like it or not, Facebook is all the rage right now, and social media networking sites are going to be a MAJOR factor in the 2012 election, and every election thereafter until some other kind of major media platform originates.

What's the Old Media going to do in 2012? Totally ignore every social media poll and straw poll taken over the past year? Ignore Facebook? Ignore online media?

That's a great way to go out of business....the old media should be trying to merge with the online community - because that's where their bread is going to be buttered in the next decade.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.
