I have been doing a lot of YouTube research recently since the MeezNation users are using YouTube like there is no tomorrow, primarily for music videos so they can dance together. However, what has surprised me is the shift in the month of August in YT popularity from Democratic nominee Senator Barack Obama (whom I give money to) to Republican nominee Senator John McCain (whom I don't). Senator John Edwards might be more fun right now, but the key "personal" tape hasn't been released yet from that fiasco.
As you can see from the graphic here, McCain is now crushing Obama in video views this month on YouTube, garnering 4.7M+ to 2M+! - this may be due to gaming of the system or it could be because McCain just figured out YouTube existed vs Obama knowing about it for a while, but in any case, each campaign is diligently posting videos each day, and McCain is spanking Obama in views - so what gives, especially since Obama is seen to be the high tech guy?
As a sidenote: If you're trying to do this on a Verizon 3G card in middle of Manhattan with all 4 green bars showing, you may want to kill yourself while waiting for the screen to load....why it needs to average less than a 28.8K old-style analog modem is simply mystifying...that will take another post after this since the performance is often far better in other cities.
