Politician’s Word Cloud: Voters’ Word Clouds
March 7, 2016
Occasionally, I will post a word cloud of a politician’s speech. But over at YouGov.com, they have created word clouds from voters’ assessments of the major candidates. You can read the findings of their poll and view the word clouds here, but here are a few highlights:
Republicans think Hillary Clinton is a “criminal, dishonest liar.” Democrats think Hillary Clinton is a “qualified, experienced liar.”
Democrats think Donald Trump is a “crazy racist.” Republicans think Donald Trump is an “honest, egomaniac bully.”
Republicans describe Bernie Sanders as an “old socialist.” Democrats describe Bernie Sanders as an “honest, old socialist.”
Democrats describe Ted Cruz as a “crazy liar.” Republicans describe Ted Cruz as a “conservative liar.”
It’s interesting to see how common these assessments are of the candidates, but it’s sad to think that our choices may boil down to two liars, an egomaniac and an old socialist.
