Personally, I'm baffled by the idea that the Internet could have any influence on how I vote. What kind of idiot gets their news from social media?

No doubt the idiots are attracted to the Internet and other shiny objects but I don't see how that will effect the outcome.
The problem is that these days we're normally dealing with a 50:50 split vote give or take a couple of %. If you can nudge just a small % one way or the other you win.
