Here is a data visualization word cloud of the presidential debates last night. I took all of the things said from both candidates, no matter how mundane, from the transcript.

Then I removed common English words like ‘the’ and ‘and’ and I manually corrected for uncommon edge cases like ‘governor’, in the case of Obama. Governor dominated his cloud but was almost universally used to address Romney (i.e. “Governor Romney says…”).

Here you are. I make no political analysis of the content. I merely present the findings.

Governor Mitt Romney

President Barack Obama
