fredthompson.jpgOn top of what we’ve been providing on a regular basis, we’ve got some more interesting tidbits on traffic to presidential candidate sites from Hitwise. For one — not that this would come as much of a surprise — older men are gravitating towards Fred Thompson’s official campaign site. During the four weeks ending September 8, over 65 percent of Thompson site visitors were male, and around 40 percent were 55 or older. Almost 11 percent of his site visitors were from Tennessee, where he once served as a U.S. Senator.

Also of interest: Libertarian-style Republican candidate Ron Paul’s site grabbed the most traffic from social sites like Facebook, Flickr, MySpace and YouTube. Official sites from Dems Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were next in line when it came to traffic arriving from such sites.
