We all know by now that Twitter is the president’s go-to communications outlet, so it’s no surprise that President Trump is using the social platform to try to mobilize his conservative base ahead of the midterm elections.
In the week leading up to the midterms, one of the president’s most-used words on Twitter was “vote,” with 14 mentions. He also called out specific states with hotly contested races, like Florida, Virginia, Indiana, West Virginia, Ohio, Tennessee, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Missouri.
The president also appeared to lean into some of his pet issues – border control, jobs and crime – to rally Republicans.
The president has a whopping 55.6 million Twitter followers. But can the president leverage that social media following to influence voter turnout? We’ll be watching.
