I’ve told candidate after candidate that they should consider blogging. This is especially true if they are the financial underdog. Usually, my advice falls on deaf ears. Governor Richardson is not one of those candidates whom I’ve advised. However, he has fully embraced the blogosphere, and it will be interesting to see what impact, if any, that has in the Democratic Primary.
As near as I can tell, Governor Richardson’s name ID is not where he needs it to be on an a national scale, but this straw poll (hat tip reader KJF) would seem to indicate that he is either:
1. doing very well with political junkies.
2. already has an active base in the blogging world.
My guess is that it is a little of both. I’ll be tracking the poll in the coming months, and will probably add the widget to my site when it becomes available.
