One advantage for the Democratic Party is the very strong support given by the mainstream media. This kind of bias is discussed in the very recently published book, Collusion: How the Media Stole the 2012 Election, by L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham. There are opportunities, however, for individuals to make contributions toward overcoming the aforementioned advantage by providing information online relevant to current issues at little or no cost. Dependent upon the level of participation, there would seem to be potential for making a difference.
