Our Take on the Presidential Debate

October 8, 2012by Hoy Grimm0

After the first Presidential debate we took the CNN transcript and collected the replies form both Obama and Romney. Here are word clouds of each participant’s answers courtesy of wordle.net.

While we tweaked the color and randomized the layout, we let the wordle.net algorithm weight the words. Can you match up the cloud to the candidate?


We also submitted each candidate’s replies to writingtester.com and both candidates received identical scores of 49 for readability and 7th grade for reading level. We’ll leave further analysis and inference to you. President Obama’s replies were first and Governor Romney’s were second.
