Rubio Trails Clinton, Cruz, Paul in Social Media Reaction

"Sen. Marco Rubio's presidential campaign kickoff on Monday didn’t make quite the splash on Facebook as earlier presidential campaign announcements,"David McCabe reported Tuesday for the Hill.

"His campaign launch generated 1.3 million interactions — which include likes, comments, shares and posts — from 695,000 people in the 24 hours surrounding his Monday evening announcement.

"That puts him behind Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who got bigger reactions on the social network when they announced. Cruz elicited 5.5 million interactions and Paul garnered 1.9 million.

"It's also a small number compared to the 4.7 million people who generated 10.1 million interactions about Hillary Clinton’s announcement. . . ."

Scott Reinardy, professor of journalism, messaged Journal-isms on Tuesday that he also looked at minority groups in his survey of more than 1,600 journalists, including more than 500 women.

"In this study, the only significant difference found on the variables (burnout, job satisfaction, work overload, organizational support, and perception of work quality) between Caucasians and minority groups is job satisfaction. The minority group had significantly less job satisfaction. Because I have not parsed the open-ended responses, I cannot say why that would be the case. Perhaps you can provide some insights. . . ."

The study included 156 people who listed themselves as African American, Hispanic, Asian, Middle Eastern, Native American or other.
