ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- According to Pew Research 16% of all Facebook users have changed their view on a political issue due to Facebook posts.

And that's why you see plenty of these, Meems that tell us why one of the candidates is the perfect choice and why it would be absolutely crazy to vote for the other candidate. Local users Kim McCloskey and David Griffith are on opposite ends of the political spectrum but they agree on the importance of getting their message out through Facebook.
