Ron Paul's Appeal is to the Internet's Youngsters

I agree that this is fascinating: Ron Paul barely registers in the mainstream of the 2008 Presidental campaign, but on the Internet, he's #1 over both Dems and Republicans. CNET suggests that perhaps it's an age thing, that Paul's positions resonate with the Internet's younger demographics.

I'll buy that. I think it also relegates the Internet to relative unimportance in contemporary politics.
