I am not sure what forum this needs to go in (I always have this problem).

So, with all the presidential craziness I was looking at follower sizes of both candidates on different social media platforms. Trump has a much larger following on the sampled platforms verses Biden.

Guess I find it odd that Trump vs Biden’s followers on social media are so vastly different to the voting turnout popular vote. Does Biden really resonate with older individuals that are not on these huge platforms? I mean if someone has a candidate they are wanting to support I would think a person would follow them on at least FB. These are all official accounts for each candidate by the way.

Face Book
Trump 33 million followers
Biden 4.2 million followers

Twitter
Trump 87.9 million followers
Biden 12.6 million followers

You Tube
Trump 1.93 million subscribers
Biden 526 thousand subscribers

Popular vote (as of 11/4/2020 4:45 est)
Trump 67.02 million
Biden 70.18 million

Your numbers are incorrect. We've stopped counting votes in order to determine exactly how many mail-in followers we need to manufacture to beat Trump.

It's because Trump is a social media showman. People don't follow boring accounts just for fun. Trump is entertainment for people all over the world.

This isn't about how liked Biden is
Its about how disliked Trump is.

Agreed
I follow Trump on twitter because its a circus
I don't follow Biden.

I...am not a fan of Trump (Nor am I a rabid anti-trumper mind you) but his social media is wildly entertaining.

I'm not going to bother verifying your numbers.. but keep in mind..

I'm a hardcore liberal and I follow Trump on all platforms for entertainment purposes. People around the world do the same 😂

I don't have social media, and I still come across his tweets regularly. They're hilarious and insane from an outsiders perspective. I loved in 2016 when he said he'd stop tweeting if he won the election because it wasn't presidential, but it was also a key to growing his voter base throughout his term.

Just because everyone loves looking at a car accident doesn't mean they want to be in one

It’s almost like other countries with losers who follow Trump exist that can’t vote.

I follow Trump on Facebook and Twitter.

I wouldn’t vote for him if it was a race to find the biggest conman ever, cos he’d still be terrible at it.

I don't follow either of them, just an observation.

social media can be accessed by everyone in the world but not everyone in the world can vote in the US election, seems quite simple to me

Plenty of people like myself follow Trump only for giggles.
I will miss those twitter tantrums of his and hope he will be tweeting even behind bars.

It's the same reason people follow Kartrashians

What is the facebook?
And the Twitter I don't use.
Is the Facebook some platform on the internets?
I'm only 32 and I seem to have fell behind the times already.
Jeez
