While researching an article on how poorly Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich have done on social media, one of the primary tools that I believe they haven’t used is the blogosphere. I referenced Red State as one of the few places that both candidates have addressed, but even then it’s clear that they are coming to this site too late. They should have been posting here and talking to Erick a couple of times a week at the very least and they should have been on every other major (and even minor) conservative blog out there.
Television is expensive. Blogging is free (and arguably more powerful when dealing with undecided voters).
The question I thought I answered in a blog post about Republican social media is whether or not Santorum and Gingrich have done enough through social media to earn them the votes. I now pose that question to Red State. Have they?
