Google Offers Proof That Tina Fey Outshines Joe Biden

tinafey11.04.08.jpgSince September 1, Google has been tracking the top campaign-related queries and posted some telling results. While the top three political personas aren’t out of the ordinary — Barack Obama, Sarah Palin and John McCain, in that order — Tina Fey came in fourth, one spot ahead of Obama running mate Joe Biden. (Chuck Norris held down the sixth spot. Of course he did.)

In an election where one VP candidate has drawn the majority of the media coverage and the other has stayed under the radar, it’s not surprising Biden ranks below Fey — whose turn as a certain Alaskan Governor has significantly raise her profile.

The searches for top political news sources from the past three months were also interesting. Drudge Report was No. 1, followed by the Huffington Post, despite the latter’s higher traffic.

After the jump, lists of top political personas, topics and news sources. Good reading on this all important election day.
