To determine the popularity of the Presidential contenders in the upcoming 2012 election on the social networking site Twitter, the 'How Do Obama and Romney Compare on Twitter' infograph has been created. Coming to the conclusion that with his nearly 16 million Twitter followers, President Obama is in the lead ahead of GOP opponent Romney with just over 500,000.
Where Obama has the youth vote, Romney has the money vote. While Obama has more women, youth and international residents and significantly more pull overall, Romney's general domination in the swing states and having an overall better cash influence is worth noting.
Another major factor to be taken into account is that Twitter is a relatively young enterprise, which may discount an entire voting demographic.
