Surviving the Elections with the Right Media Mix

A couple weeks ago I commented on an article, Clinton v Trump: Why the 2016 Presidential Election will turn Social Media into a War Zone, regarding the presidential election and social media. As promised, here is the follow-up to my article that contains social media statistics you should be aware of as well as how to minimize risk during the election season or any other external factor that may influence the success of your campaigns.
