A record-breaking 46% of Americans have used the internet, email or cell phone text messaging to get news about the campaign, share their views and mobilize others. And Barack Obama's backers have an edge in the online political environment.
35% of Americans say they have watched online political videos a figure that nearly triples the reading the Pew Internet Project got in the 2004 race.
10% say they have used social networking sites such as Facebook or MySpace to gather information or become involved.
6% of Americans have made political contributions online, compared with 2% who did that during the entire 2004 campaign.
