US Midterm Elections Update

US Midterm Elections Update
The purpose of this report is to provide perspectives and insights from the media on these elections. We take a thematic analysis approach by which each item in our large depository of media articles is tagged as whether or not it is related to the election based on the textual features of the article. We use the fraction of midterm-related articles to total articles collected at a given day as a proxy for the media’s attention. To get a better idea of the specific topics covered by the media with respect to the elections, we further classify midterm-related articles to specific sub-categories, such as immigration, gun laws, women rights, healthcare, and the economy.
