A new report on "online political citizens" finds that politically-energized people who frequent the Web (you, perhaps) are "not isolated 'cyber-geeks'" (phew!), are disproportionately influential in their communities, and are often political neophytes. Even before the first primary, the Institute for Politics, Democracy & the Internet at George Washington University says, online political citizens "played a pivotal role in the campaign, and they may be harbingers of permanent change in American politics."
