Santorum makes gains following debate this week on Inside Facebook’s Election Tracker

Some pundits expect Rick Santorum to drop out of the race after the Florida primary, but his Facebook page has gotten a burst of new Likes since Thursday’s debate, according to our Inside Facebook Election Tracker.

There is still time for things to change before Florida voters go to the polls on Tuesday, but in the past, we’ve seen correlation between Facebook growth and election performance. Newt Gingrich’s page was on the rise leading up to the South Carolina primary and had a large spike the day after he won there. His growth has since leveled off, but remains higher than it had been two weeks ago.

Ron Paul reached a new high with more than 9,500 new Likes in a single day following the debate in Tampa, Florida. He has been gaining the most new fans per day for the past week. Mitt Romney’s growth has slowed over the last few days, mirroring his drop in the polls.
