Over the course of a year, I end up covering a lot of political topics and stories. But some posts really catch fire with my readers who then share it with their circles and next thing I know, it’s really making the rounds. As my goal is to inspire people to take action on issues that matter to them, I thought I’d take a look back and see which posts were your favorites.
#1 With over 41,000 views, 2019 Elections: Tweets Don’t Vote takes home the Political Charge Readers’ Favorite award. Published shortly before the November off-cycle elections and helped by a meme I created especially for the post, this one really made the rounds.
#2 Early this year as Democratic candidates were entering the presidential race, I published a series of guides for each of the major candidates, focusing on their public stances on 7 key issues. The two candidates who Political Charge readers were the most interested in reading about, were Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg.
#3 The cartoon roundups I publish every Saturday continue to be popular. But the most popular issue was on August 3rd, when national cartoonists were focused on the new nickname for Mitch McConnell that had caught fire–Moscow Mitch–and the “rat infested” comment that Trump had made about Baltimore to take a swipe at Congressman Elijah Cummings, may he rest in peace.
#4 As someone who is focused on increasing turnout at ALL elections it thrills me to no end that Political Charge readers wanted to read and share 2019 Elections: The Big November Races. This post had legs–it wasn’t just that it got shared when it was first published, but week in and week out, kept making the rounds.
#5 In addition to the 2019 election, though, my readers were very interested in looking ahead at key 2020 races. At the top of everyone’s list is a desire to flip the Senate which I know because Here are the GOP Senate Seats to Flip in 2020 comes in as the 5th most read post of the year.
Thank you all for reading and sharing posts from Political Charge. Your desire to take action inspires me and I want to continue to provide you with good information you can share in your circles!
Also, stay tuned for the 2019 Yearbook, in which I recount all of the great “wins” we had this year before we turn to the next year.
