Each week, we report the number of pageviews received by 2020 presidential campaigns on Ballotpedia. These numbers reflect the time investments of our community of thousands of readers who visit a Ballotpedia because they think the candidate is worth knowing more about, whether they believe the candidate has a strong chance of winning or is an unknown who warrants a closer look.
Last week, Pete Buttigieg led all Democratic campaigns in pageviews. His campaign page was viewed 9,207 times, equaling 19.1% of pageviews for all Democratic campaigns this week. He was followed by Bernie Sanders with 15.1% of pageviews and Michael Bloomberg with 12.9%. Buttigieg became the third Democratic candidate to break 9,000 pageviews in a single week; Kamala Harris and Marianna Williamson each did so the week of June 29, following the first debates in Miami.
All Democratic candidates received more pageviews this week relative to last week. The candidate with the greatest increase from last week was Buttigieg. His campaign page increased in pageviews by 395.8 percent. Andrew Yang saw the smallest increase in pageviews relative to last week among Democratic candidates with 73.7 percent.
The top three Democratic presidential candidates in lifetime pageviews are Yang with 170,842, Buttigieg with 165,805, and Joe Biden with 156,705.
