Scott Brown Wins 10 to 1 on YouTube

Uh oh, the Republicans have learned how to use the internet!

While Scott Brown beat Martha Coakley in the Massachusetts U.S. Senate race by a margin of 1.1 to 1 at the polls on election day, on YouTube he beat her 10.4 to 1.

Scott Brown gained his first traction on YouTube with his viral JFK Republican ad. But that ended up being his campaign's 4th most popular video.

The Martha Coakley campaign's 4th most popular video was the highest viewed one to feature her. Her most watched video featured President Obama, her second featured Vicki Kennedy, and the third was intended as an attack ad featuring Scott Brown.
