That whacky YouTube debate



Tb_youtube_450story Months after the first YouTube presidential debate, on the eve of Round 2 in St Pete, some observers are asking: Did the novel, tech-infused debate change anything?  Story is here.


Meanwhile the Fl Chamber is planning an insta-poll on who wins the debate Wednesday night. InsiderAdvantage says it has placed more than 100,000 calls to find undecided Fl Republicans who planned to watch the debate. Immediately after the debate the randomly collected sample of undecided voters will call a toll-free number sent to them.

"Data should be collected by 10:20 pm," said Jeff Shusterman of Majority Opinion, InsiderAdvantage's research partners. "We will weight the data for age, gender, and geographic location, and should have results
between 10:30 and 10:45 p.m."
