The Facebook vote


Simply comparing Facebook fan counts would have been an accurate predictor of the winner in 74% of House races and 81% of Senate races in the United States this week.

For whatever it is thus worth, our federal leaders presently rank as follows.

Stephen Harper. 36,611
Michael Ignatieff. 32,676
Jack Layton. 31,093
Elizabeth May. 7,172
Gilles Duceppe. 4,885

Possibly of note: Justin Trudeau has some 26,000 fans.
