Election Debates: Text Analysis

Authors: Mark Anderson

Abstract: Talking time during the first general election debate of 2020, 2016, and 2012 is visually shown. Much of the public discourse at the time was to see the number of interruptions between candidates which we can easily see.

Additionally, if the user drags/selects the visual, the actual text will appear in the right table. Please toggle the top buttons to switch years when selecting the plots.
