Q: introductory paragraph of the impact of the internet on politics
A: The Internet and emerging technologies have made a profound impact on Presidential campaigns. Online campaigning has revolutionized political communication, grassroots activism, supporter outreach, and fundraising. [ Ten years ago, the Internet was barely used in politics; today it is an innovative, informative, interactive, and a creative tool that transformed Presidential campaigning. In the
Internet’s early years, most users were academics, military, or technology enthusiasts; today, the Internet is a common part of American life and has gone mainstream. Since the mid-1990s, the Internet has been the fastest growing resource in American politics. With more than 55 percent of Americans utilizing the Internet frequently, and nearly 70 percent having Internet access, campaigns are investing millions of dollars into developing websites and emerging technologies to reach supporters, target voters, shape public opinion, and raise funds.1 In recent years, advances in high-speed Internet access and price decreases, low price dial-up Internet access, and growth in home computer ownership, have increased Internet usage. High-speed Internet, for example, enables people to look for information faster and perform more complex online tasks without tying up a telephone line. The use of high-speed broadband is also increasing overall ]
