ABSTRACT
The article addresses the issue of the dynamics of the political culture among Internet users in Poland. Selected aspects of political culture revealed during the elections campaign are compared to the observations made during the 2010 presidential election in Poland. The aim was to determine the similarities and differences in opinions, assessments and behaviours of Polish Internet users. The research results allow to conclude that Polish Internet users are more active not only in the various areas of everyday life, but also are more interested in politics than average of all citizens. The level of this interest is, however, frequently changing. The article ends with the conclusion that the development of the Internet in politics and the development of the political culture of Internet users will run, at least for now, according to the scenario called technorealism. This means that people active in various fields of social life, including in the sphere of politics, and at the same time using the Internet will have bigger and better opportunities for both the acquisition and creation of information and participation in politics. On the other hand, people who are not very active will not want to use this opportunities.
