If Who2’s 100 Most Popular profiles list is any indicator of electoral votes, Barack Obama has the edge over John McCain. Obama has been a steady #1 for most of the last month, with McCain rarely at #1 or #2.
Here’s the top 5 as of 8:00 am on October 8th, the morning after their second debate:
1. Barack Obama
3. Sarah Palin
4. Martin Luther King, Jr.
5. John McCain
It’s not a scientific measure by any means, of course. But after such a big event you’d expect Obama and McCain to be 1-2 or 2-1, not 1-5.
(Tip of the cap to boiler room engineer Mike Duffy for noting this trend earlier.)
