Election 2010: The View From YouTube

Google rolled out some fun facts on last month’s election-related YouTube video views today, with the rankings reflecting viral popularity as much as political viability. For what it’s worth, all 10 of the most viewed News and Politics videos were from Republican campaigns or supporters, and the predominant theme was anger–from the ominously orchestrated “America Rising” to the royally ticked-off, gun-toting, horse-riding candidate for Alabama Ag Commissioner, Dale Peterson. The most popular of the 450 official candidate channels on YouTube was that of Delaware Senate contestant Christine O’Donnell, fueled by her “I’m not a witch…I’m you” video.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
