  • RT @AusDemocrats: they are more likely to be thinking voters: and therefore more likely to be swinging voters (and we <3 them) #
  • I think the studies show that "thinking"/engaged voters more likely to be fixed in voting intention – @AusDemocrats #

  • RT @lyndons: My theory of value for pollies blogging is that it engages the bloggers, commentariat & journos – *not* voters directly. #
  • RT @lyndons: If a pollie blogs: bloggers, commentariat, digerati will engage with their agenda. This'll have a 'viral' impact on voters. #
  • RT @AusDemocrats: Committed voters react to political messages almost exclusively with emotional part of their brain. Uncommited rationalise #
  • RT @AusDemocrats: so a blogger who thinks enough to blog on an issue has used the rational part of their brain so can be swayed by argument #
  • RT @lyndons: I would hazard a guess that "thinking voters" are pretty much 'rusted on' ALP, LP or Green already 🙂 #

  • RT @desertgirl_2: Nothing more frustrating than voters who blindly believe mass media & spin and don't think or research for themselves. #
  • RT @AusDemocrats: The real benefit of pollies being online is not to inject their message to sway the uncommited voter, but to listen. #
  • RT @jimrhiz: Actually @danupoyner said that. I agree: we can't judge Twitter as a whole based only on our own comfortable homogeneous corner #
