This is hilarious... are you really basing anything on their Facebook popularity? You have got to be freaking kidding me. This goes to show the maturity level and mentality of Long supporters.

Is an election anything other than a "popularity contest"? It's funny when I read this I could see the desperation in this post. It looks like you're scared you could lose your job or something.I look at the facebook numbers and the OP is true,I think Pope has had it in this "popularity contest" AKA...Election.

You are correct, an election is a popularity contest. However, you can not base who is ahead based on their Facebook page. You must keep in mind there are MANY elder voters out here in Butts County that I am quite sure do not have social networking as part of their daily routine. Also, for the record, this election will not affect my employment in the least.

Ok,so now any elder voter without a facebook page is automatic to vote for Pope. The fact now is if you have a facebook page and like Long it don't mean you will vote for him....if you are elderly and don't have a facebook page you WILL vote for Pope. I'm sure Long can see the "likes" of you as a "like" he can do without.You have just been declared an official FOOL here in Monroe county.

On the other hand.....How many Facebook 'page-likers" actually DON"T live or vote in the county? On Pope's that would be "most" as most of them are his employees which very few of live in Butts county.

Mama Spare...you just proved my point; FB page "likes" are not an indicator of much. Pope supporters on FB AND Long supporters on FB --- many of them are not even residents of Butts Co.

OK, If Long has 400 "likes" and Pope has 100 "likes" Long has a 4 to 1 margin over Pope. An average of 25% of both sides "likers" live in another county or don't even vote.Don't the numbers still mean Long shows a 4 to 1 "liking" among Facebook users over Pope? Someone said elders don't use Facebook. Is the written rule all elders are for Pope? I'm sorry with a margin like that among people of any age I would say Pope better go ahead and apply for his Social Security because living expenses are high and the free ride is about over.

It is obvious I am dealing with people who are far more intelligent than me, how dare I even type on this page... alot of Long FB "likes" are Clayton County police employees or buddies he made while working in Afghanistan, which more than likely DO NOT reside in this county (before you start your ratio game again I said alot not all). Again my point is, FB should not be a factor when trying to determine who our next Sheriff will be. I know people who "like" both pages just because they are nosey. FB is definitely a forum to get things heard and seen but like I said some "like" both so they can see what both candidates have to say!

And on the other hand most of Pope's are his deputies that live outside the county.I don't care how you cut it average is average .If you average Long's likes from non voters it will AVERAGE out to almost the same as Pope's only Problem is Long has 5 times as many to AVERAGE out. I know you don't have enough fingers, toes and teeth to count that high so leave it alone and post on some hillbilly handfishing thread you understand better in the future.

Is it really necessary to degrade other people while you are trying to make a point? Have I given you any reason to believe that I do not have enough fingers, toes and teeth to count or that I have a hobby of hillbilly handfishing? Have a good day and happy voting!

Its funny all of a sudden Pope's facebook is overrun with "likes" from all over Georgia with just a few of the people living in Butts county. Don't tell me Cato has been advertising for people to "like" his page because of the question of him not having many followers.They still only have 1/4 of the members Long has.This is funny and shows just how "Shaken" the Pope camp is.This is a sign of another failure by Cato as he wastes time with his computer.Sorry you can't vote if you don't live here "like" it or not.

Don't be so proud of your ignorance, Gerald. Hey, tell me how can a man stand by while his daughter is beaten black and blue and then support that husband for sheriff?
