GodTube.com, the website which set the record as the #1 fastest growing website in the U.S. according to ComScore during its first official launch month, is now the leading source of nationwide Christian polling as it conducts an ongoing election poll for the 2008 presidential race. Since GodTube.com announced its online election poll (www.godtube.com/election), more than 48,000 Christians in total have responded in support of their favored candidate.
The most surprising results have come in support of Democratic candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton holding a combined 43.9% of the votes -- as compared to Republican candidate Mike Huckabee who is drawing support from only 34.7% of the evangelical Christians participating in the poll.
"From our poll, it's clear the candidate's platforms and political issues are weighing heavily on Christian voters in this election," said Chris Wyatt CEO and founder of GodTube. "It appears the Christian vote is still up for grabs, which we've seen in the past can swing an election.
Barack Obama has received a 35% increase in the poll since January 27, 2008 giving him 24.3% of the votes. Hillary Clinton has received a huge 78% increase giving her 19.6% of the votes.
