There is interesting momentum around automation policy & UBI coming from @AndrewYangVFA's base. I archived comments from his JRE interview & started playing w/ them here. A lot of positive rhetoric from right-leaning centrists & non-voters. Check it out:  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1whETa4DUpgTvIMORIsezJeHGfj0tX7hM20YyCFDg9Io/edit#gid=2137030696 

Yang is hitting all of the right stops, and the comment threads that follow are really unlike anything you might have seen in the last decade. I've compiled the comments from his Breakfast Club interview here. Look for yourself.  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pEtsxI--4G8_vgndGJZ2NqFPNP4KPkr_JCI-pJqXpLA/edit?usp=sharing 

If you start to examine the second-pack candidate field, you'll see these 'running' spikes that quickly fall off. The Yang campaign looks much more like traditional virality; it's paced, and compounding.  https://socialblade.com/twitter/compare/andrewyangvfa/tulsigabbard/petebuttigieg 

Very interesting web dynamics playing out leading up to this election.
