Rep. Rob Bishop’s rematch against Democrat Donna McAleer could be closer than many expect.
The latest round of PoliticIt scores shows McAleer just behind Bishop in her online reach, which is a good predictor of electoral performance. The PoliticIt score takes into account a candidate’s digital footprint, including social media and Wikipedia. The higher the score, the better the online reach.
McAleer is just behind Bishop by a 53-47 margin.
Democrats shouldn’t be popping those champagne corks just yet. Bishop’s score is likely lower than it should be as the Congressman has never sent a single Tweet from his account.
