A Trump Supporter’s World is Expressed Through Negativity

Published by admin on

Our analysis of millions of Social Media data points shows that support for Trump is more often expressed by disdain for his opponents rather than positive language towards the president. Support for his immigration policies is frequently couched in negative language aimed at immigrants, and positive statements are mainly limited to simplistic memes such as “Build the Wall”.

In contrast we find that discussion of progressive candidates is more likely to articulate support for them and their policies in positive terms.
