Actual Presidential Votes (?), Part II

Here are the latest numbers based on a Google search for everyone who posted that "I voted for" one of the six leading candidates over the past week. The caveats noted in the previous post (see below) still apply, but the longer-term search should identify people who've taken advantage of early-voting privileges in certain states.

Baldwin 99
Barr 175
McCain 12,755
McKinney 25
Nader 261
Obama 29,002

Senator McCain can take solace in the likely fact that the majority of his supporters are the people least likely to make any statements online due to old age, low education or rural isolation from internet access. But if those groups form a silent majority that elects McCain tonight, it won't exactly reflect well on the country.
