The communicative actions of millions of people structure political communication systems, which have activity peaks during certain processes, especially during electoral campaigns. In this sense, the primary objective of this research is to observe, describe, and analyze the communicative actions of the United States’ political communication system during the 2016 general presidential campaigns, in order to understand the regularities and ruptures of a system that organizes a large-scale political process.
