Currently researching why outlets are reporting that English Russian sites are favoring democratic candidate , or going as far to say that she's a Russian asset. I'm finding it difficult to find their evidence of this short of browsing thousands of toxic articles from RT and Sputnik News. After much digging, they may be referencing a project by the -- A collegiate nonpartisan entity that investigates foreign policy and US national security threats. (1/3)

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 . Expectedly, 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
