Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney tops the field in more than just primary/caucus wins and polls. The former Massachusetts governor is also No. 1 in Facebook fans, with almost 1.4 million as of Jan. 14, according to Facebook data given to Politico
Texas Rep. Ron Paul is second with about 800,000 Facebook fans. That’s not surprising, given that much of his support comes from young people, who are more likely to use Facebook than their elders.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has just over 200,000 Facebook fans. Texas Gov. Rick Perry trails right behind. But former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum has less than 200,000 Facebook fans and didn’t receive much of a boost after losing the Iowa caucuses by only eight votes to Romney.
