After reading this post (thanks to him), I think it could be interesting to replicate this with some specific up of french language and to see and we can perform rapid view of the debate between Sarkozy and Hollande of the last 2nd round of presidential election.

Key words : TextMining, Elections, France, Debate, 2nd Round

We use the packages qdap from (Tyler Rinker) and tm to perform textmining analysis and the classical package like ggplot or RColorBrewer make our  graphics look pretty.
For Hollande

Top words From hollande

For Sarkozy

Top words from Sarkozy

As we can see, I’ve a problem to manage french accent. If somebody have any idea… We can also perform a quick Gantt plot basing on Qdap package and get some information about who lead the debate No surprise about the winner.
