Internet Beats Radio In 2004 Campaign

The Internet and Campaign 2004

The Pew Internet & American Life Project has just released a report and a
commentary about the internet’s role in the 2004 election. The report is
based on a post-election survey and documents how and why the internet
became an essential part of American politics in 2004. Fully 75 million
Americans – 37% of the adult population and 61% of online Americans – used
the internet to get political news and information, discuss candidates and
debate issues in emails, or participate directly in the political process
by volunteering or giving contributions to candidates.

The report is free and available for downloading at:

And the commentary by internet-and-politics scholar (and our colleague)
Michael Cornfield is available at:

Very interesting figures here.
