Will Cyberspace Dominate Political Opinion on 2016 Presidential Elections?

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 21, 2015) - Since the early 2000's the world has witnessed the social media versus traditional media talks and its effect on political opinions in our society. Thus, prospective 2016 presidential candidates are found throughout Twitter and Facebook with several postings that attempt to spread exposure for public and political figures as former U.S. Secretary of State and First Lady Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), former Florida governor Jeb Bush, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

The millions of social media users are swarmed with postings on articles, video clips, and quotes from political figures like Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and supporting groups that reach our personal computers, tablet PCs, and mobile phones with loads of news and updates that could possibly influence our political opinion on the various possible 2016 presidential candidates.

Despite the delays on any of the 'hopefuls for presidency' to announce that they are officially running for office, many people are on the fence about who is serious and who is playing politics, which has left major contributors from flushing funds into the super PACs as Political USA Action, Ready for Hillary and Ready for Bernie Sander 2016, due to their desire for more confidence and abundance of endeavors from possible candidates. This has been a subject that has been on the minds of several political supporters and was discussed in a recent news article last month in Washington Post 'Big donors holding off making pledges to pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC'.

Cary Lee Peterson, chief adviser for Ready for Bernie Sanders 2016 says "the PAC will continue to focus on pledges for bundled contributions from social clubs and not corporate bodies", when asked about the political action committee's plans and David desJardins, a California based supporter of independent political groups says "I'm waiting to see if Hillary announces a campaign and to see what it looks like", as reported by Washington Post.

The circulation of cyber news continues to update us with the latest on this subject on possible presidential candidates as it develops. Whereas, it is apparently up to us to tune into our social media news feeds for real-time updates, rather than local news broadcasts and newspapers to stay up to date with who is actually in 'the running for president (or not)', as reported last month in New York Times.
