Ron Paul on iOS app: GOP UnboundSubmitted by Hendrik on Mon, 03/26/2012 - 11:12
Check our brand new [free!] iPhone and iPod touch app GOP Unbound on the App Store! We analyze well over 150,000 tweets a day and carve a quite well delegates forecast out of it.
The results are truly stable and we think this is an excellent indicator for the Republican Party unbound delegate vote in an open convention, August 27-30 in Tampa. Some say, well, Ron Paul is the 'internet choice anyway'....
... No he's not as you could think: Starting our app you'll see actually he's 3rd (although had some fairly good past 3 days...). Opposite, there is quite an amount of mass media echo paying out for Romney and Santorum, currently. So the Paulite net savvy just equal out the mass media buzzed. With Gingrich having less internet support but a fairly good media presence, it's interesting that he is just 4th in our current ranking. It demonstrates that our premises are not too bad.
So bottomline, our numbers should be very very accurate. Way more realistic than the official count, which for instance currently broadcasts 60 for Ron Paul, which is absolutely bogus regarding Paul's well-going caucus delegate strategy.
One last thing: We're not making this up! All candidates are treated equally by our analysis, as in our screenshots you see Paul only 4th. We see this as kind of an experiment and we're doing it proper. Next week we'll add charts to it so you'll get intraday and longer frames. Further it's already got Twitter support so that you can send our delegate forecasts out to the world. Next week also Facebook support for doing some more spin doctoring.
I'd assume that a rising Ron Paul forecast could spin some momentum especially if the app gets some momentum, so you guys spread the word! It's free, so I'm not making money out of it but probably it can clear some dust there is currently over this 4 horse race.
And most important: our delegate forecast is for an OPEN CONVENTION, when the delegates get unbound in their vote after first ballot.
Thanks and now download and spread the word - to other forums, FB, Twitter, blogs and wherever !
