#JudgeKavanaugh #TRUTH

Given the spin in the media and by leftist Hollywood/celebs + skewed (or fabricated) polls , it can sometimes be hard to know where the public stands on an issue. People tend to live in their "bubble" and get affirmed w/in their own echo chamber.
2/

While this is not a scientific method, I thought I would analyze data available on Twitter, which is open to all people but is known to skew things to the left, to see what the numbers tell us about support for or opposition to #JudgeKavanaugh.
3/

My method was simple. To avoid being "served" input from within my bubble, I did this analysis anonymously while logged out of Twitter. I pulled the 15 top results served by Twitter on a search of "Kavanaugh" and compiled these results, which are VERY interesting.
4/

The 15 random results included some major news organizations and Twitter personalities. Of the 15 results, the postings could be classified as 9 in support of Kavanaugh and 6 showing opposition (60% favorable).
5/

Looking at follower counts and weighting them, I found that the 9 supportive posts came from Twitter accounts w/ 45.2M followers. The 6 anti-Kavanaugh posts came from Twitter accounts w/ 33.7M followers. So weighted splits (based on followers) were 57% favorable, 43% against.
6/

It gets VERY interesting when looking at engagement and comments. This gives a measure of where the "people" stand on the issue and the degree of energy and passion. Retweets, likes, and comments were HUGELY in favor of #Kavanaugh. The results were staggering actually.
7/

- 97% of all retweets (11,603 of 12,009) were for the Pro-Kavanaugh tweets
- 97% of all likes (31,094 of 32,115) were for the Pro-Kavanaugh tweets
- 54% of the top COMMENTS (76 of 141) were pro Kavanaugh
8/

- Comment engagement (that is, the tally of retweets + likes) for the 141 top comments was 87% pro Kavanaugh. That is, adding the retweets + likes of the top comments showed 3,459 of 3,997 RT/likes of comments were for favorable comments to Kavanaugh.

#TRUTH
In summary:
- 60% of random tweets re: #Kavanaugh supported him, w/57% of implied "audience" supporting Kavanaugh (using follower count as a proxy)
- 97% of all retweets and likes were supportive of Kavanaugh
- 87% of the engagement in comments support Kavanaugh
