Yet Another Sentiment Analysis Project on Electoral Scene
With today’s municipal election, the Directeur Général des Élections du Québec with the collaboration of l’Institut du Nouveau Monde, developped a tool called “6 Millions de X“. The site helped voters follow the different citizen-driven projects and monitor the political pulse of the population. This project, coordinated by my friends at Lichen included a Sentiment Analysis Tracker on the Twittersphere of Quebec’s political scene. The website is available mainly in french at http://www.6millionsdex.com/
On top of a new set of sentiments to be tracked, the project included sources from different media, Twitter, broken down by geographic regions, and separated political candidates sentiments from citizens political mood.
