Post Democratic Debates Candidate Rankings

I have collected news from the web since the first of the year.  Every single time, over the course of 180+ scrapes, Trump was always the number one term.

Until yesterday.  Yesterday the number one word mentioned in the news and on social media was “debate“…

Post Debate Bump?

Percentage wise – the biggest bump from ?    Granted it’s because she started somewhere near zero, but still…
