Following the US Election? Here’s What Voters Are Listening To
Oh, the things you can do with Spotify data. Looking for a new way to spin voter behaviour in the current US election campaign. Bloomberg looked at the playlists created by self-identified voters and sorted them by musical preferences: “blue” for those who generally vote Democrat, “red” for Republican and “purple” for “I’m not sure who I’m going to vote for yet.” The result was a series of master playlists for each group.
The full list of songs and playlists can be found here. Feel free to parse them for any kind of deeper meaning. Thanks to Roger for the link.
