Two giants in the new media world — Google and The Fix — are joining forces to bring you the best coverage of the Republican vice presidential sweepstakes anywhere. (We are exaggerating — obviously. Google isn’t that big a deal.)

Starting today, you can find the Fix’s latest rankings of the leading contenders to be Mitt Romney’s second-in-command on Google’s election hub.

But wait, there’s more! You can also see search traffic, You Tube video views and Google News mentions for each of the ten men and women we see as the most likely to be chosen by Romney. You can see trends by day, week or month for each/all the candidates.

Check it out. Bookmark it. Thanks us later.
