Abstract

In a presidential election as close as the current one, the result may be heavily influenced by how each party can mobilize its supporters to register and to vote. As part of their ongoing analysis of how the candidates communicate on Twitter, Heather Evans, Kayla Brown, and Tiffany Wimberly have collected and coded tweets concerning mobilization and civic engagement. They find that Hillary Clinton has out-tweeted Donald Trump in almost all words and phrases concerning civic engagement. The only civic engagement category where Trump is winning is when he talks about “joining”; asking people to join him at rallies.
