Clinton's Web Site Doesn't Impress, Study Says

More than half of those who visited the Web sites of Barack Obama, Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul had a more favorable view of the presidential candidates after viewing their sites.

By contrast, only 36% thought better of Hillary Clinton based on her campaign site, according to a study by marketing research firm RelevantView. Presumptive Republican nominee John McCain finished in between, with 44% improving their view of him after visiting his site.

The results were based on a February survey of 780 people self-identified as Democrats, Republicans or Independents and RelevantView's online behavioral tracking technology. Respondents were asked about candidates' stands on the Iraq war, health care, taxes and spending, and immigration before and after visiting their sites.
