In terms of social media chatter, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has replaced former Vice President Joe Biden as number one among Democratic presidential hopefuls. His rise appears to be fueled by the fight he picked with current Vice President Mike Pence.
Buttigieg moved to the top on April 11. Measures of social media support are updated each morning at 4:30 a.m. Eastern.
This mornings update is the first time in a couple of weeks that Biden has not held the top spot. Additionally, it’s the first time in weeks that the primary topic of chatter about Biden moved away from Gender Equality issues. Today, most Biden chatter is about Taxation.
