Washington (CNN) – One year has passed since President Barack Obama took office promising a new era transparency in government using technology, including social networks. And while the White House's official YouTube page has received 21 million video views and close to 100,000 subscribers, Republicans in the House and Senate are dominating use of the site.
There are 430 members of Congress who have also started YouTube channels, but Republicans have been more active than Democrats.
Steve Grove, who heads up "News and Politics" at YouTube, wrote on a blog last week: "Though the Democrats captured the majority of the seats in Congress, 89 percent of Republicans have channels, compared to just 74 percent of Democrats. Eight of the top 10 most-viewed and most-subscribed YouTube channels in Congress are from the GOP."
The top 10 most-subscribed-to YouTube channels on Capitol Hill, in order from most to least: Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Florida; Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California; House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio; Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Virginia, Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Michigan; Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minnesota; House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, R-Virginia; Sen. Jim DeMint, R-South Carolina; and Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, R-Michigan.
Rogers leads the list of the top 10 most-viewed YouTube channels in Congress. He is followed by Grayson; Pelosi; Forbes; Cantor; Boehner; Rep. Tom Price, R-Georgia; Rep. Don Manzullo, R-Illinois; Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska; and Paul.
