Anonymous asked: You surely know that social media shouldn't be used as a thermometer of the political energy of the country, yes? Otherwise, you can easily judge from twitter and tumblr and say the country is mostly left leaning and Obama will win. Yes, social media is heavily liberal, so taking it as a poll would be a skewed sample. That's why it's easier to enumerate threats against Romney from it, but the same (or more) amount of threats are probably there against Obama, just not vocalized over social media.
If a threat towards the President is not made public, then it is not counted as a threat.
