The Republican Presidential Debate Clouds: Round 2

September 18, 2015 — Jonathan Wallace, Manager, Marketing Communications

After the first Republican presidential debate, we showed you how the WordCloud function in the Wolfram Language can be used to create compelling visualizations of what the candidates said.

This time around, Alan Joyce and Vitaliy Kaurov have done an even cooler analysis over at Wolfram Community, delving further into what words were used most frequently and what subjects the candidates had in common—and how they set themselves apart.

For example, check out the words uniquely used by each candidate in Wednesday’s debate below.

Jeb Bush WordCloud Ben Carson WordCloud Chris Christie WordCloud Ted Cruz WordCloud Carly Fiorina WordCloud Mike Huckabee WordCloud John Kasich WordCloud Rand Paul WordCloud Marco Rubio WordCloud Donald Trump WordCloud Scott Walker WordCloud

Says Alan, “It’ll be interesting to start watching trends over time, as the campaign season progresses and more debates occur.” We can’t debate that.
