This just came in over the proverbial transom: basic social media numbers on several politicians being mentioned as potential Romney Vice Presidential picks. These data were compiled by experienced digital marketer Al DiGuido, about whom you can learn more at AlDiGuido.com. Note that Marco Rubio leads the pack, for what it’s worth — as we’ve seen here more than once, raw numbers about Twitter and Facebook are no predictor of electoral success. And of course, these are simply follower numbers, which give you no hint of how someone actually uses the channels. Also note Biden’s equivalent standing, included for comparison.
