Sep 13th 2012

A presidential campaign is inherently volatile and reactive, with both candidates frequently  reacting to events outside their control and then their reactions taking on a life of their own.  Yesterday was such a moment, with both candidates responding to the tragic events in Libya and elsewhere.  

Taykey’s technology monitors the web across over fifty thousand sites to both understand what topics emerge on a moment by moment basis and interpret how people feel about those topics.  With much of yesterday’s news focused on Governor Romney’s handling of the situation, our friends at MSNBC wanted to take a look at how the online audience was reacting to this breaking story.

Above is a video of the first segment from last night’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell with a four minute discussion based on Taykey’s data.
