According to a Rock the Vote and Pace University nationwide telephone poll of 662 newly registered voters in 2004, forty-four percent of new voters rely on the Internet as a major source of campaign information (http://www.rockthevote.com/rtv_pacepoll.php).  Wemight reasonably assume that in 2008 that number is significantly higher. So, what will they find? 


This assignment invites you to select any candidate running for any office in the November election and explore the arguments being made on his or her website about why we should vote for this candidate. To complete this assignment you should look at the strategies of argument and the content of the argument and use both to evaluate how well-informed these new voters will be about the candidate you have selected.
