I have started to read a daily political blog called Mike Allen’s playbook on politico.com. Here is some interesting face and analysis from today’s post relevant to higher ed web communications.
WashPost’s Shailagh Murray and Matthew Mosk reveal that Obama for America has “an e-mail database of more than 10 million supporters. … At least 3.1 million people on the list donated money to Obama.”
TODAY’S BEST POINT — The Nation’s Ari Melber: “The massive list of energized activists is the biggest stick Obama will carry in Washington. It enables direct communication at a remarkable scale. The next President can instantly address 16 percent of his national supporters, based on the popular vote. To put it another way, the list dwarfs the audience of all the nightly cable news shows combined.”
