GWU Looks at the Social Election

By Allen Fuller
George Washington University found that lots of people participated in the last election. Online, that is.

Earlier this year, ORI and the George Washington University released the results of their survey exploring the role and influence of social media in informing and shaping the public’s perspective. One of the most significant takeaways was that of those surveyed, nearly 25 percent donated money to a candidate or political party. Of those who donated, 77 percent donated online, as opposed to 54 percent who donated by mail.

The survey presentation slides are below.
