Politicians already have switched to new media. Note the use of Facebook in this candidate's announcement of his race for President. Also note there is still some disagreement as to how one should go about using new media. Some observers thought it was well done. Others were not so sure. As written here in the past, campaigners tend to be fast adopters of communications techniques. They are pragmatic when it comes to winning elections and will use anything that gives them an advantage.
