PeekScores: Perry soaring

The biggest story of the  PeekScore list is the  increase in PeekScore (and corresponding ascent up the chart) of Texas Governor Rick Perry.

Perry’s public profile has been increasing dramatically – and his candidacy for presidency is taking the GOP base by storm – with a new poll in New Hampshire backing up these findings.

According to PeekScore, this increase in PeekScore confirms that Governor Perry’s recent growth is corresponding with a noticeable increase in impact in the cyber realm. With such a dramatic jump in PeekScore over a very short period of time is rare, so from PeekYou’s perspective this is perhaps the most interesting development since we started measuring and ranking the candidates in this way.
