WEEK OF 9/12 – 9/18 TRUMP HISPANICS ANALYSIS
With Twitter and Instagram combined this week we see that Trump mentions among U.S. Hispanics continued to be higher than Clinton’s at a rate of 98% vs. 2% even though there were just a little over 2,900U.S Hispanic conversations.
When it came to sentiment, Clinton had just 24% compared to Trump who had 15% in positive sentiment. Trump however, had an 50/50 split between positive and negative sentiment this week, dropping from 28% last week.
This week, there are still more male conversations than female, Trump continues to have slightly more Hispanic women mention him than Clinton.
This week, Trump had a slightly higher amount of Spanish conversation at 11% compared to Clinton at 9%. English still remains the language of choice for U.S Hispanics as they talk about both of the candidates.
