In the week leading up to the midterm elections, Washington, D.C., journalists and pundits were focused on one politician: President Trump. Trump is not up for re-election until 2020, but the media continues to view the president as a key player in this year’s election.
The Fourth Branch’s mentions of the president rose to nearly 1,400 tweets this week, compared to only 529 tweets that discussed voting or the election. It appears the media sees the midterms as a referendum on the president.
Tomorrow, we will see what the country decides.
