Wordclouds By Support for Trump

I also asked respondents their opinion of President Trump. Below are the word clouds divided by whether or not they have a positive opinion of Trump.

Positive Opinion

Negative Opinion

Neutral Opinion

Visualization Note

I used GIMP to change the background of the images to an american flag, as image processing isn't very graceful with R, the programming language I used to generate the word clouds
