@johnalxndr @francisperron I know that FB doesn't offer Sentiment analysis but that would be absolute GOLD with this data!

@francisperron even if you don't agree with Trump, it doesn't take a lot to understand why he's popular. He's the anti-establishment, and it's not always what he says, but with the zeal and honesty that he says it. A lot of people in this country are tired of voting for politicians (and rightly so), so they're choosing to stand behind the one candidate that isn't... for better or worse. The reasons aren't really that different from why democrats are choosing to back Sanders.

@johnalxndr @francisperron This is fascinating to me. I always wonder why politics seem to be so polarizing. Everyone (I assume) wants what is best but all I hear is fanaticism and hatred. But PH isn't the right place to talk about this.

@francisperron everyone hates super pacs/special interest groups/donors, so they don't have any alternative to Trump if they are a republican. same with democrats and Sanders. if you ask independents, a majority of them will tell you that they'll choose either sanders or trump (and most seem to lean towards sanders over trump)
