The data isn’t necessarily indicative of who the most popular candidates are in the country.

Facebook users are disproportionally younger than the overall population, and tend to be low-income and female.

But the data does give a glimpse into the massive support of young voters both Sanders and Trump have been garnering.

“The data isn’t predictive of the election, but it is a revealing look at the preferences of many people who use Facebook and like the candidates’ pages,” said managing editor David Firestone.
