The folks at the PEW Internet and American Life Project released a report last week detailing the survey results of voters in the 2006 elections. While television still holds the majority of the share, the big headline that sticks out is that use of the internet for getting information on campaigns doubled since the last mid-term election.
One finding of note:
“Voters got 19% of their news and information about the campaign from the websites of news radio organizations, such as National Public Radio.”
Not the radio station, but the website of radio organizations. Granted, that is a share of the 15% that internet usage garnered overall in the survey, but it is significant nonetheless. It tied the Daily Show’s website, even.
