After being on the ground in Iowa to watch Santorum’s last-minute surge and on the ground in New Hampshire to watch Romney claim a victory, it was a welcome reprieve to run the Google Politics and Elections War Room for South Carolina from Google’s DC office.
It’s hard to believe that in only one week, the JESS3 team waved good-bye to Iowa and set out to New Hampshire for the second election event of 2012.
Betrayal. Mud-Slinging. Deception. Espionage. None of those things happened on my recent trip to the New Hampshire primaries, where JESS3 partnered with Google to deliver amazing and relevant data relating to user search trends.
There’s no question that the headlines and results coming out of Iowa on Tuesday this week was a surprising upset for the Rick Santorum campaign.
