Here in the USA, if you turn on any news station, they have been obsessing over the past year on which political candidate will be our next President.
We thought it would be fun to see who’s winning in terms of article content submitted to EzineArticles.com to date that mentions the candidate.

Notes: Our search includes articles where the title contains both first name and last name, only last name but not anyone else’s last name (‘hillary’ was used instead of ‘clinton’ for the last name in her case). Ex: Title contains Obama but not Hillary or McCain. The above stats are hardly conclusive due to the grayness of whether an article is PRO or AGAINST a particular candidate. All EzineArticles categories were evaluated to produce the above results (not just the Politics category).
Our editors (in terms of their political preferences) are reflective of what you could expect from a typical person of their age group… ie: Young college educated 20 to 30 somethings.
This morning, I asked our editors what type of political article content they’ve been rejecting lately: Mostly, content has been rejected that included name calling, news rips (ripped off some news site that was pro their candidate of choice), negative statements without any backing for the reasons why, and hater / spiteful articles that don’t add any value to the discussion.
Keep in mind, EzineArticles.com is not into citizen journalism; we aim to not take risks on content; and we are not a freedom of speech website.
Editor #35 had this advice to share:
Too many authors write about one particular candidate, and why they strongly like/dislike him or her. These articles tend to be very personal-opinion oriented. A better approach would be to look at the candidates in a national context by focusing on the campaign and the issues– not just the individual who’s running.
