GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, who seems to grow stronger in the polls with every controversial remark that he makes, is crushing the competition in YouTube views. That is according to a recent analysis conducted by ZEFR, which bills itself as the video identification technology company for content owners and brands.
ZEFR analyzed YouTube data for the top 10 Republican and Democratic candidates for the week of Nov. 30 to Dec. 6.
Not only is Trump beating his Republican rivals by a nearly 8-to-1 margin, but he had more than double the views of likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and almost four times as many engagements, which is considered a more reliable measure of performance.
The results closely mirror the polls, with the exception of Carly Fiorina who didn’t make this list, but will be on the main stage for tonight’s GOP debate, and Mike Huckabee, who came in at No. 9 but will be in the undercard debate this evening.
