polls are a great way to predict a winner. but, often info on the candidates is a week old by the time e 's published. three professors at the university of iowa had an idea to look elsewhere for the nation's political pulse. so, they created a first-of-its-kind website. saturday, ian price was using his free time reading to one of his kids at the downtown library.but, look at his shirt, you'll know he's popotically nvolved. "big sanders supportete he's
hadad message that's resonated with me."ian spends a good deal of time reading and some positing about political stuff on social media. he's not alone. "fifty percent of americans use social media sites such as twitter and facebook to get information about politics."professor shafiq is one of three ui who set out to learn more about people's political postings. over the last about two years, the three developed this website:
com and the algorithms to run it. it centers on the top ten primary candidates and has a lot t features. a few of them? the site collects trending tweets about the ten. also, top trending news. but the site's key feature is these charts. the page analyzes tweets to find which republicans and democrats have the momo positive poststs the site then plots the data on the graphs. "all this information really is untapped. there is no portal which can actually allow people to go and look at what are all the conversation s happening on these websites."
shafiq says this kind ofata is portant because the charts give a by the day perspective on the pulse of the nation. some features updateteven faster. a normal poll would likely take a week or more for results. "polling data is offline. it is slow. it is cumbersome. polling companies will tell you that they cannot repeat the process everyday." the site is up and running as a few weeks ago. that means, guys like ian have another resource while cruising the web for political insight.
