Ron Paul is the only GOP candidate whose fans collectively don't count The Bible in their top non-political Facebook page likes.
"For a candidate like Mitt Romney, it's helpful to know that his supporters on Facebook tend to like the TV show "House," suggested Jordan Raynor, client director at Republican digital agency Engage. Earlier this month, the agency compiled lists for the GOP presidential candidates and President Barack Obama, showing the top non-politics related Facebook pages liked collectively by fans of each. Their analysis: the findings reflect a cultural divide.
As a result of such information, suggested Raynor, Romney's campaign might "take a closer look at running television ads during [House's] time slot, targeting Facebook ads to fans of House or targeting Twitter ads to followers of House. In theory, this targeting will increase conversions and ROI for the campaign."
The company used Wisdom, a Facebook social intelligence app, to build demographic profiles on Facebook users and determine which pages they liked.
Here's a look at the lists associated with fans of the final four GOP hopefuls, and Obama.
