The language we use says a lot about us; the same is true of the political parties. The New York Times published an analysis of which words were used the most by each party at its national convention. A list of the top ten for each is a useful guide to help voters see whether Democrats or Republicans more closely reflect their own values.
The list for each is composed of the words were used the most AND were also used more often than by the other party. Of course, the top word for each was the name of their candidate, so these were not included:
Democrats: Jobs, Women, Families, Economy, Middle Class, Health, Fight, Education, Forward, Medicare/Vote
Republicans: Business, Government, Leadership, Better, Success, God, Ryan, Small Business, Freedom, Debt
