I'm taking a dreadful research design class right now. We were discussing the polling and what not behind gun control today. The issue of social media was brought up. And I put forth the premise, that based on Twitter, people are now more concerned about "The Bachelor" than they are gun control, which is a marked contrast to the immediate post-Sandy Hook back lash.
Another thing I've learned thus far is that your average low information voter doesn't participate in off-year elections, nor do they follow anything other than a straight ticket when voting for President.
Sad yet comforting at the same time.
