Recent studies by the Pew Research Center confirm that an increasing number of Americans are using the internet to gain information about their favorite political candidates, including internet favorite Ron Paul.
However, Michael Cornfield and Pew researchers find that while more voters are using the internet as a political tool, the internet has not yet transformed the political process as some critics may have thought it would. Their analysis finds that experts thought that the internet would provide better (and cheaper) communication between candidates and the electorate. Instead, Pew states that many feel "the internet only hardens our views, polarizes our politics and contributes to the nation's red and blue divides." Will Ron Paul become the candidate who brings the electorate together through a grassroots internet campaign?
