Europa United’s Ken Sweeney and Ola Jasińska chat with Tobias Gerhard Schminke who is the founder of Europe Elects, an organisation that provides Poll aggregation and election analysis for countries in the European Union.
Europe Elects has more than 109,000 followers and subscribers on Facebook,
Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and LinkedIn. The newspaper POLITICO reported in July 2019 that Europe Elects is the 12th most popular news source in the European Parliament, ahead of CNN, The Washington Post, or the Wall Street Journal.
The Bavarian public television broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk found that Europe Elects was globally the number 1 news source on Twitter in the European election 2019. Despite having these impressive numbers: Europe Elects was founded without any financial means by an SMU student.
