An analysis of the emotions being expressed on social media indicates that the upcoming U.S. presidential election may be a much closer contest than many commentators and pollsters believe.
Based on these polls, many political analysts and commentators are expecting that Biden may win a historic landslide. But expert.ai’s A.I.-based analysis indicates the race may be much tighter than these human experts are expecting.
Expert.ai’s political forecasting model was successful in predicting that the U.K. would vote to leave the European Union in 2016. And academic research has shown that similar social media sentiment analysis would have better predicted Trump’s victory in the 2016 U.S. presidential election than polling data.
