"As Benjamin Okande, Dean of the Webster University School of Business and Technology commented, the winner of this election will in all likelihood be determined by the I.P.O.D. generation – Internet savvy, Phone addicted, Opportunistic, and Digitally conscious.
'The future of American politics will never be the same,' said Okande. “The I.P.O.D.ers are poised to become the conscience of this nation.” Some 44-million strong, this digital generation represents a voting bloc not tied to the one-party mindset of their parents. 'If they don’t see results and movement away from the status quo, they will influence others with their phones and use the power of the Internet to ensure that other I.P.O.D.ers are keenly aware of their views.'
