Barack against John McCain

While the race - not just on the Web, see picture below - seems pretty much over for Hillary, John McCain and Barack are pretty close. In fact, today (May 31, 2008), John just got a boost (see line graph today).

Zooming in on the social network of Web sites, John is really popular in Texas. The biggest blue circle in the picture is the McCain Texas Web site, boosted by other Republican Web sites, helping him to beat Barack, at least for today and on the Web.

Time is running out for Barack Obama

When I checked the Condorview blog buzz scores of the three presidential candidates this morning, thinks looked really bad for Barack Obama. The damage done by the inflammatory remarks of his (former) pastor Jeremiah Wright really undermined his standing in the blogosphere. His score (in blue) has never been as low since I started tracking him in March. While scores of all three candidates went down, in relative terms, Hillay seems to rebound (light brown).

On the Web buzz level, Barack still is leading (as in the polls in the "real world"), but the Blogs point the way. Drastic action needed now!
