Political culture and Bloggers

Political culture:
a set of values and orientations which determine and influence the public's perception of politics.

In determining whether blogging is an effective tool for democratization, it is probably important to have some idea of the current political culture of bloggers and blog readers.

Are they politically aware? Do they vote in the General Elections? Do they plan to vote? Do they frequent blogs with strong socio-political content or blogs which are primarily entertaining? In what manner do they blog about political content? (Critical and constructive, neutral and mainly reporting, ranting and whining?)

Political culture in Malaysia is fragmented across ethnic lines, education level, social classes and more. Are we able to come up with categories that would provide an idea of the heterogeneity of political culture in bloggers as well?
