Plurk the Vote

Plurk the Vote on the Quicken Loans blogHere’s another site suggested by Charlie Kondek, my favorite graduate of Ferndale High (well, I read the Spinners went there – so if that’s true, they are my favorite Ferndale High grads, with Charlie close behind).

Charlie recommends I (and you) check out Plurk the Vote to get the inside scoop on what folks are REALLY thinking and saying about the candidates.

Here’s some more info from Charlie:

New social networking site Plurk just announced “Plurk the Vote,”
offering new ways for those passionate about the political process to
voice their ideas.

Through Plurk the Vote, users cast a vote for their preferred presidential ticket, leading to an overall “leader” among the choices in this year’s campaign.  Plurk users can also engage in discussion about each candidate’s platform and current events as they occur.

These discussions are tracked and analyzed, resulting in an overall favorability rating for each candidate. Plurk the Vote offers a unique and interesting perspective of how the candidates and their platforms are resonating with the increasingly more vocal social networking generation. 

Ok. Sounds interesting. According to Plurk the Vote, Obama is whupping butt and taking names with an 84% to 16% lead over McCain.

Wow. McCain better hope Plurk’s voters are way off the mark. Check it out and let us know what you think.

  2. Yeah, I agree. The Twitter election stream is very interesting. One thing I noticed about both Twitter and Plurk. They are both OVERWHELMINGLY pro Obama. No quesion the majority of those who like/use social media lean in that direction.

  4. Old is being a member of the class of ’85 from FHS – Charlie’s a youngster…
    Technically, the Spinners went to Lincoln High School in Ferndale, before the current FHS was built. Lincoln was located on 9 Mile, where a grocery store/parking lot are now located, at Livernois.
