Charlie Crist: Governor of...Facebook???Facebook gets political.
One of the newest features at the popular website Facebook is the Campaign 2006 issues. People who are members of the site can now show their "friends" the candidates that they support and the issues that they believe in.
According to the Orlando Sentinel....
On Tuesday afternoon, Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist had 54 percent of the Facebook vote, while his Democratic opponent Davis had 46 percent of the vote. A little more than 3,000 Facebook users have listed their preference in the governor's race.So, if the election were held this past Tuesday, and if the only votes tabulated were on Facebook, Charlie Crist would have won. I'm sure he's very proud of that.
Then again, almost 8,500 people on Facebook believe Stephen Colbert should be President, so I'm thinking that Facebook isn't exactly the place to go to see who's doing better in the polls.
Of course, what do I know? I would vote for Stephen Colbert.
