As we get closer to the 2012 Presidential election, more and more people are using social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter to express their political views. According to a survey from the Pew Internet & American Life Project, these views are sometimes a little too surprising to the poster’s web friends.
On the NBC drama ‘The West Wing,’ the Secret Service code name given to staffer CJ Cregg was “Flamingo.” And while she wasn’t all that happy about it, it made sense — the character was played by statuesque actress Allison Janney.
But many are scratching their heads about the current code names being used by GOP presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum.
As technology continues to become more prevalent in our lives, the idea of an “e-voting” system for a national election would not seem out of the realm of possibility. Many have voiced concerns about the security and potential corruption that would come with electronic methods of voting. Those fears were recently confirmed when researchers from the University of Michigan successfully hacked through security functions of an online voting project in Washington D.C. within 48 hours.
The pace at which the Republican presidential race is going, it’s surely going take a toll on the various candidates. Lack of sleep being one. Case in point, Newt Gingrich, who dozed off in front of the camera during the live streaming at the AIPAC conference.
While most media organizations strive to be fair in their reporting (you know, that whole objectivity thing), the majority of Americans think that their bias still shows through in their political coverage.
Politics is definitely in the air, especially since 2012 is an election year. But a recent survey by Harris Interactive on behalf of Careerbuilder.com suggests most folks still shy away from talking about Democrats and Republicans in their workplace.
