Opinion Mining in Social Networks versus Electoral Polls

The recent failures of traditional poll models, like the predictions in United Kingdom with the Brexit, or in United States presidential election with the victory of Donald Trump, have been noteworthy. With the decline of traditional poll models and the growth of the social networks, automatic tools are gaining popularity to make predictions in this context. In this paper we present our approximation and compare it with a real case: the 2017 French presidential election.
