Rick Scott is Bringing the Sexy to Instagram

If there is anything voters have not been asking for it is more pictures of Gov. Rick Scott on the internet. Apparently, a young staffer thought a good way to make Scott hip to all the youngsters is to put him on Instagram.

Kyle Munzenrieder makes a good point about the demographics of Instagram.

Instagram is an odd choice, considering that the vast majority of its users are under 30, and that the site attracts a user base that is more female and African-American than the general population. You know, the exact kind of people that don't tend to vote for Republicans. Is there really an overlap between people who are genuinely excited about both Tea Party-hardliner Rick Scott and their friends' super-cute selfies? Granted it's only his first day, but so far there only seems to be 66 people following him.

Munzenrieder is correct. Market Charts posted their finding of Instagram users. The largest ethnic group is black at 20 percent. More women than men use Instagram. 43 percent of Instagram users are between the ages of 18 to 29. Those are the exact people Scott is trying to make wait in long lines for his bogus voter fraud reforms.
