Many people wonder why Iowa and New Hampshire play such an important role in American Politics. What many people don’t really fully appreciate is that it is the actual eye to eye and face to face communication that is so key to really understand.
The reason we all get so inundated with ads during election years, is that most of us live in states where there is no retail politics, only wholesale – mass barrage of information.
Maybe the Internet is helping to change the orientation from all wholesale, 24 hour media barrage to the handshake and eye to eye contact again, albeit electronically. In fact, the AP just ran a story about the numbers of Americans turning to the net to get deeper into politics.
