An alternative to polls, this new approach uses sentiment analysis and media attention to forecast election results.
NEW YORK, NY – July 14, 2020 – RavenPack, a leading big data analytics provider, has launched a free and publicly available website, offering projections and analysis on the upcoming U.S. presidential election.
RavenPack’s forecasting model combines three key inputs:
- The level of media attention received by a presidential candidate, which has been found to be highly correlated with election success
- The sentiment for each candidate, measured from thousands of news stories about their policies and personal life, across all 50 US states.
- Social and economic sentiment by state, which provides a proxy for the sitting president’s approval rating and chances of reelection
The latest election forecasts alongside news and media monitoring is freely available at https://election.ravenpack.com
