The Words of the Democratic Convention

by Jane Susskind, published

Did you follow Day 1 of the Democratic National Convention? Much like the "We Built It" phrase that echoed through the halls of Tampa, Democrats had their own arsenal of words, repeating keywords and phrases throughout the night's events. The New York Times put together this visual to track the words being used at the Democratic Convention and their frequency.

The New York Times has also included excerpts from convention speeches so far, including this quote from Independent Governor of Rhode Island, Lincoln Chafee:

There's nothing moderate about our love of country or our passion for America's future. (Applause.) There's nothing moderate about our desire to work together within the broad political center in which most Americans live.

As an independent voter, do any of these messages appeal to you?
