The project, Foreign Influence Election 2020, is a group that analyses these mentions of our candidates. Articles were given a weight of neutral, favorable, or unfavorable. The 1203 articles of dem candidates between 1-1-19 and 11-10-19 clearly illustrate who Russia wants as President if not #Trump. Expectedly, #JoeBiden being the biggest threat to Trump, has only 3% favorable mentions during this window. Conversely, TG has a whopping 46%. (2/3)
Why does Russian propaganda want Gabbard to be inaugurated in 2021? I think its in America's best interest to not elect a President that Russia prefers. However, I don't know anything about Gabbard, and that was the reason for all this research. Perhaps she doesn't share the Kremlin's ideals and the only objective here is political disruption and in-fighting of the left.
Does anyone with more knowledge on Gabbard's stances have insights to all this? (3/3)
@unicornfarts I don't see Biden as being a threat to Trump, if he wins the primary Trump gets re-elected for sure
@Matter I would say he is the 'perceived' threat. If you just look at polling numbers. Which nobody should be doing but that's what everyone talks about
