Warning: Why the Presidential Race will be closer than you think.

Obviously, Barack Obama is facing a tough challenge from apparent nominee Mitt Romney. However, I want to issue a stern warning to conservatives that believe this is going to be a Romney landslide. You heard it here first, the 2012 election will be very close!!! Why? Social Media. Obama dominated social media in 2008. He's at it again in 2012. Yard signs, buttons, and political gimmicks are a thing of the past. The battle will be fought in the trenches on Twitter, Facebook, linkedin, and youtube. Therefore, it is imperative that the Romney campaign AND ANY CAMPAIGN FOR THAT MATTER, do not take social media lightly. I will be presenting an article next week "The top 10 ways to find voters via social media".

Need an expert at finding local voters??

Opposition research and social media marketing for political candidates.

Look at the facts below:
