The selfie election

Gone are the days when voters want politicians to kiss their babies or sign an autograph. These days the majority hope to score a selfie with a presidential candidate. Dubbed by some as the "Selfie Election," the 2016 presidential race is being defined by a candidate's social media presence.

"The selfie is now the 11th amendment of the Bill of Rights," Jeb Bush said at a recent fundraiser. "It's inspired by our framers and founders, apparently. It is a requirement that you take one, and I do it with great joy in my heart."

Bush isn't the only candidate to jump on the selfie craze. The majority of the 2016 presidential candidates have posed for selfies throughout their campaigns.
