Validation of Twitter opinion trends with national polling aggregates: Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump

A method to infer the opinion of Twitter users by using a combination of statistical physics of complex networks and machine learning based on hashtags co-occurrence to build an in-domain training set of the order of a million tweets is developed.

Prediction and its limits.
