DEEP DIVE

President Biden’s name is always near the top of the engagement charts on Facebook, but over the last two weeks there has been a lot of news. First, the Supreme Court struck down the administration’s vaccine mandate on January 13th, which conservatives celebrated. Then, on January 19th, the Senate debate of the Freedom to Vote and John Lewis Voting Rights Acts John grabbed the national spotlight, with voting rights-related posts from progressive and conservative pages alike earning 1.3 million interactions.
