I see a sort of problem here.
I followed Trump in 2015. Many folks who would want to follow Trump did so years ago.
Aren’t his numbers saturated already, so his new followers becoming smaller than they would otherwise be, if he were a new candidate.
Granted he does have a massive lead. In light of the dynamic I mentioned, his follower base growth is pretty impressive.
That’s why total followers is important. The fact that Trump to s still adding considerable numbers is a good thing
I will see if I can find out the breakdown of nations that Trump's Twitter support is coming from. Yes, one would think that Trump's Twitter support would be saturated here in the U.S.
I think youre right, and the same for Bernie.
This charting that Sam has done is so prescient because hes been doing it so long that it shows the social media curiosity over the long haul of a US election WITHOUT the static of leading questions and samples polled. Hes getting straight from twitter users who choose to follow people. That is a non-twisted stat.
