Super Tuesday has a winner

February 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Super Tuesday rocked the airwaves last night as  Hillary and Obama were in a near dead heat with Hillary racking up the big California prize.  Texas looms large now for the March 5th primary with 228 delegates at stake and a scheduled Feb 28th debate between Obama and Hillary.

It was interesting to see Huckabee and Mitt Romney lighting up big victory cigars and declaring victory while they were losing.

But the big winner last night was Google Maps teamed up with Twittervision.  This app filtered all the twitter posts that related to the election and posted them on a map of the world. 

Check it out.  It kept me in stitches all last night and was tit for tat more informative than CNN, MSNBC, Fox or any of the old media outlets.  New media was the clear winner in last nights Super Tuesday.

 You can also keep track of the election at @Politics (run by the Media Cynic) and at Politweets. There is also a list here of political candidates with Twitter accounts.

Google has also has added an Election news resource. In the meantime you can check the latest polls to see how pollsters like InsiderAdvantage, SurveyUSA, Zogby, Rasmussen and ARG predict the candidates are going to do today.
