The results are now available with selectable graphs synchronised with the videos (details below).
results show that Americans are difficult to sway from their preferred party, regardless, it seems, of the merits of the candidate’s arguments or promises. The screen shot below shows how people who usually vote Republican generally respond positively to everything Mitt Romney has to say – while those who usually vote Democrat invariably react positively to President Obama. The dramatic swing from positive to negative is unmistakeable as the video segments alternate from one candidate to the other.
One of Romney’s highest scores with 35 to 49 year olds (yellow line) was reached when he talked about repealing ‘Obamacare’ (although this didn’t go down too well with the 18 to 34 year olds (red line).
But, surprisingly, Romney frequently scored higher with 18 to 34 year-olds (red Line) than Obama (the segment in the middle that scored lower with younger voters).
The graph below shows segments, alternating between Romney & Obama’s speeches, demonstrating the President’s compelling appeal to women (red line).
