General Election: What the people are saying 13th April

The con­ser­vat­ive party launched their mani­festo, but it didn’t have the effect on th eon­line con­ver­sa­tion as I thought it would. It did, how­ever, appear to have a pos­it­ive effect on their online sen­ti­ment: yes­ter­day they were 61.9% neg­at­ive and today they’re at 51.9% positive…

So here’s today’s overview:

And if your inter­ested in why ‘Hor­ri­fied’ was trend­ing — it was to do with Richard Keane ‘s tweet:

@richardkeane: told the tor­ies played keane at their mani­festo launch. am hor­ri­fied. to be clear — we were not asked. i will not vote …

The release of the con­ser­vat­ive mani­festo didn’t cre­ate the same increase in online con­ver­sa­tions as Labour’s did; it just bal­anced the % of con­ver­sa­tions out.

What was inter­est­ing to see though that all online sen­ti­ment is now pos­it­ive for all parties — for the first time:

  • Con­ser­vat­ive: 51.6%
  • Labour: 64.8%
  • Lib Dems: 53.9%

So let’s see what the Lib­Dem launch of their mani­festo has on the con­ver­sa­tion tomorrow.
