Over the last two months, U.S. political channel the YouTube Town Hall has received 50 videos from representatives across the U.S., and the videos have been viewed a cumulative 1.3 million times.
YouTube users have asked questions of members of Congress and then voted on their answers while focusing on the value of the idea rather than the party of the speaker (Town Hall doesn't reveal party identification until after a vote is submitted).
The top level highlights are:
- Republicans received the most views, with over a million views total
- The five topics Americans wanted to hear most about were the economy, energy, Afghanistan, education, and the budget
- Democrat's videos received the most votes from Town Hall visitors
- The most viewed video overall is Senator Jerry Moran's answer to a question on which sectors are most important for American economic growth.
