The group held a survey which found that 46% of all Americans have used the Internet, e-mail, or text messages to get news about the U.S. elections and to learn about candidates such as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John McCain.

In total, 30% of all adult Americans used the Internet in some way shape or form to talk about the candidates, learn about them more, etc.

This report is likely going to lead to politics going online more than ever, with the campaigns of McCain and Obama both leaning towards supporting the online crowd.

It is becoming clear that the best way to get your message to voters may be online.
