Virtucon: The GOP Digital Divide In 2013’s Statewide Races

If this is true, then even I have a better online presence than most of our Republican candidates:

So just looking at these numbers, where does the GOP stand?

Governor and Attorney General races we’re doing pretty darn well. Raw numbers are at least competitive and the Cuccinelli/McAuliffe numbers reflect the national profiles of both candidates and of the campaign.

Lieutenant Governor? Chopra benefits from his national profile as the first Chief Technology Officer of the United States. But his focus and following has been based on tech topics, not running for public office. How well he can utilize that advantage in a primary battle and eventul general election is anyone’s guess. But among the GOP field, no one candidate has carved out a significant space in social media yet.

It’s early so there’s a lot of room for growth in all areas. But have we learned anything?

The jury’s still out.

Looks like we’re in for another bruising.
