September News Trend Data: Top Pundits in Politics

With September and its primaries behind us, we wanted to look back at the top pundits and politicians mentioned in news and blog headlines across the web. We broke it down week-by-week to see how the relative mentions shifted as the election season progressed.

Of the top three pundits mentioned in August headlines (Beck, Bush and Palin), only Palin went on to continue to dominate the news in September. Clinton, O’Donnell and Palin were the three most popular names in the political sphere this September, with mentions of O’Donnell during primaries in the third week of September skyrocketing. At the end of September, O’Donnell still held media attention, with Whitman and Colbert gaining a solid share of the news, as well.

And as predicted, President Obama was mentioned most frequently in headlines in September (bottom graph).
