Spartan Internet Consulting Corporation today released the SIPP Index results for the presidential candidates' Internet performances for the week of December 27 - January 2. The SIPP Index represents the most comprehensive indicator to measure online support for candidates. "The SIPP Index results this week provide a glimpse into the grass root support base for each of the candidates heading into the Iowa Caucuses. Those who can organize and activate their support online show a strong potential to organize and get out the vote," said Ryan Vartoogian, President of Spartan Internet Consulting.

Currently maintaining the top three positions are Barack Obama (19.69 percent), Ron Paul (17.19 percent), and Hillary Clinton (10.50 percent). The largest decliner this week was Hillary Clinton, down 1.00 percent. The largest gainers included John Mccain, up 0.77 percent, and Mike Huckabee, up 0.55 percent. For full results, see below.
