How social media elected an unpopular President
Share

Many experts and non-experts alike are asking themselves the same question – how did U.S. president Barack Obama get reelected? No other president in the U.S. history has managed to get reelected with the country in such a bad economic state and with such high unemployment rates. So how did he do it? How did he beat a specialist in economy, who many believe has what it takes to get the country out of this situation?

There’s no question about it – social media was at the heart of both the candidates’ campaigns. And, by looking at Obama and Romney’s numbers on social media, it seems quite clear who the winner is, by far. So we have to ask ourselves, could social media be the reason why Obama got reelected? And if so, how did he do it?
