>>> mitt romney 's 47% remark is still lighting up social media . one week after it went viral. jansing & company just got new numbers from visible measures. those video clips have been viewed nearly 9 million times. they've generated 50,000 comments so far. but this is a new week, and the campaigns aren't leaving things as they are. are they, richard?
>> no, they're not. good morning, chris. for instance, emmys, a new hollywood drive will help president obama . 20 to 30 stars will spend 15 minutes at a california photo shoot . penny marshall will be there, ashley fink from "glee" will grace the twitter and facebook posts as well. and katie psychiatrstrickland from "private practice." the dress code here, black shirts and black pants and holding green leaves to reflect the keep it growing theme. this don't take it for granted push could reflect drops seen on social media recently. both of their twitter political indices which measure tweet sentiment dropped since the conventions. and a week on from the 47% comment which you were just mentioning there, they saw a 17-point spread at one point. that difference now settles to predust-up levels. the president still leads by other measures. facebook likes, for instance, romney has 7 million. romney , 28 million. on twitter last hour, obama has 20 million followers. romney , 1 million . but not all of these followers are real, says social media company status people. their engine finds that just 24% of obama followers are good, and 55% of romney 's in these little areas here. now, still the good ratio when you look at it with obama is 7x, if you were to do the math there. either way romney has an opportunity here, says an article entitled "is romney homsocial?" 57% to 80% of these users dominated by women. and romney 's early social media efforts here, chris, were not as aggressive as obama 's.
>> i guess it's too early. we've never had a campaign like this, so we'll see if these kinds of numbers actually have any relationship to getting people to the polls.
>> the first social media campaign, they say. right?
>> fascinating stuff. thank you so much, richard.
