Rand Paul Facebook Like Count - Looking Good!

Back on April 25, 2011, a bit more than a year prior to the nominations being made, I started a thread keeping track of Facebook Like Counts for the 2012 election called Facebook like counts - we have a lot of work to do. It's interesting to look back at that.

Back then, here were the relevant Like Counts:

Barack Obama: 19,543,556
Mitt Romney: 859,916
Ron Paul: 330,264

On May 21, 2012, the counts were this:
Barack Obama: 26,634,195
Mitt Romney: 1,753,094
Ron Paul: 966,370

And as the Like counts predicted, Romney won the GOP nomination, and Obama won the general election.

Today, May 6, 2013, it's a bit more than 3 years before the next nomination is made, but still... Rand Paul has over 900,000 likes. Better than any other likely candidate!. That's right, he's ahead of all the GOP contenders, and ahead of Hillary and Joe.

Here are the relevant counts.
