Abstract: In this paper we consider automatic political tendency recognition in a variety of genres. To this end, four different types of texts in Hebrew with varying levels of political content (manifestly political, semipolitical, non-political) are examined. It is found that in each case, training and testing in the same genre yields strong results. More significantly, training on political texts yields classifiers sufficiently strong to classify non-political personal Facebook pages with fair accuracy. This suggests that individuals’ political tendencies can be identified without recourse to any tagged personal data.
