Google: Ron Paul Is Super PACman

GOP Super PACs have spent over $30 million on this year’s presidential primary, most of it on television advertising. But the big spenders on TV aren’t necessarily the biggest players on YouTube.

From Google Politics & Elections (via techPresident):

Are all super PACs ads created equal? Not according to +YouTube views. We looked at viewer counts for content posted by super PACs supporting the GOP presidential candidates, using the +The New York Times ranking list as a guide (goo.gl/yctFN).

Updated Note: The New York Times guide doesn’t explicitly call out PACs like Endorse Liberty (supporting Ron Paul,youtube.com/endorseliberty, 14 million video views) or the Susan B. Anthony List (supporting Rick Santorum, youtube.com/sbalist, 577,000 video views), and they were not used to generate the graphic below.

We found Revolution PAC, which supports +Ron Paul, has earned more YouTube views on its content than the Super PACs for all other GOP candidates combined.

Cautionary note: A whole bunch of this Ron Paul stuff is web-only video, so take the Google chart with a block of salt. Still, something is happening and you don’t know what it is . . .
