Chart of the Day 2: Comparison of United States Presidential Bid Speeches

Posted on Updated on

‘Chart of the Day’ is a series where I produce and post an original graph from data I found interesting without comment.

Disclaimer: The ‘analysis’ is conducted using qualitative analysis software NVivo by analysing the word frequency (themes) of each candidate’s presidential announcement speech. This is not rigorous qualitative analysis, it’s just a bit of fun. I still found the results interesting, but draw your own conclusions from the data.
