Rounding out the political coverage, CBS and NBC both filed features on specific voting blocs. NBC sent former Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw to California to cover the "real donnybrook going on for the Latino vote." He estimated that it is breaking two-to-one in favor of Hillary Rodham Clinton in the Democratic races in California, Arizona and New Mexico. CBS' Daniel Sieberg picked on the twentysomething cohort and the mixed success of social networking Websites as a mobilizing tool. Barack Obama can contact 370,000 supporters instantly using Facebook and can boast 11m views of the Black Eyed Peas music video of his Yes We Can speech. On the other hand Republican Ron Paul raised $6m online from his supporters in a single day yet "he does not have a single delegate."
