Because searching for a party leader on Google certainly means that you'll want to vote for them. :rolleyes:

This is very interesting research from Google & the Uni of Sheffield because I do think internet searches/social media will be able to predict voting patterns in the future the big problem at the moment however is the research does not show if the search was positive/negative, if they could develop a way of classifying the search as in support of or against a party it could be a very useful tool of voting patterns & where parties should campaign

It's threads like this that remind me, democracy really is the best of the worst systems of government.

Data like this an indicator on profile and exposure which is one step removed from voter choice.

With UKIP for instance the problem in previous General Elections was that they were a fairly low profile party that most people hadn't heard of. Farage has obviously lifted their profile and given them more exposure which is what political marketing is all about.

The next stage is converting people from having heard of you to wanting to vote for you - the issue for Farage could be a lot of people are getting information about him but then deciding for whatever reason not to vote for him.

Haha, he really isn't! A lot of people who haven't fallen for all his 'straight talking' think he's a pillock and wouldn't dream of voting for his party.
