McCain is getting absolutely spanked by Obama when it comes to Internet advertising, which may well be the deciding factor in this election.
Obama has raised more money than McCain so he can spend more on such advertising, still, it's hard to understand why McCain hasn't countered more demonstratively. Most effective are the non stop "Register to Vote" advertisements with Obama's face attached (like the image above). It doesn't matter what News website you look at, you'll find the advertisement for Obama-even Fox news has these advertisements. Heck, my Facebook page constantly has a picture of Obama in the corner telling residents of Missouri to register to vote for Obama.
The 2004 election saw an unrpecedented amount of 18-25 year-old voters, much of this was drummed up by internet advertising. This election will crush the 2004 numbers and Obama is doing a masterful job capitalizing. In my opinion most people over 30 have their mind made up. I think most of the "undecided" voters are among younger adults who spend allot of time on the internet and could care less about Rush Limbaugh. With the Hollywood elite pushing Obama at every opportunity (for free), the media propping him up as Messiah, the various "gotcha" interviews with Palin, the current financial crisis (where Republicans look as fiscally liberal as Democrats) and the current, massive Internet campaign by Obama, I'm starting to have my doubts about McCain's ability to stay in the thick of this race. Maybe he doesn't know how to use a computer?
Newt Gingrich recently acknowledged McCain is lagging in the polls, however he was careful to point out how quickly elections can swing in this age of TV and Internet. I agree, however, McCain simply isn't using the Internet as well as Obama. If he's counting on like-minded Christians sending each other creepy Youtube videos of Obama supposedly promoting the socialistic brainwashing of children, he's way in trouble.
I wonder what the McCain camp is thinking? They seem a step behind, or two.
