Meetup Numbers

I was curious so I looked up the Meetup numbers for the different candidates as of today:

Dean 59,661

Kerry 5,467

Clark 3,910

Kucinich 1,025

Edwards 974

Gephardt 302

Leiberman 128

Graham 90

Sharpton 55

Mosley-Braun 55

All the candidates have Meetups. All of them have websites. All of them take contributions online. I don’t think it’s the Internet that is behind Dean’s grassroots popularity. I think Dean’s grassroots popularity is what is behind his Internet activity.
