At Jumpshot, we wondered how people’s online behavior stacks up to the ever-fluctuating polls. By analyzing US elector’s online search and browsing behaviors and tracking people’s online journeys to candidate websites, we were able to glean interesting insights into where Americans get their political news, which candidates have successful social strategies, what issues the public wants to learn more about, and so much more.
