Baby Yoda for president?
The breakout star of “The Mandalorian” is driving nearly twice as many average social media interactions in news stories about it as any 2020 Democratic hopeful, according to Axios.
The diminutive, doe-eyed, big-eared creature with an uncanny resemblance to the Jedi Master has taken the internet by storm since being introduced Nov. 12 in the Star Wars spin-off series on Disney+.
The adorable character’s debut coincided with the entry of two latecomers into the Democratic field, former Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick.
Both candidates have had a significant number of articles written about them since Nov. 12.
Bloomberg ranks second among the Democratic pack with 7,650, while Patrick is in fourth with 4,044, according to data from NewsWhip provided to Axios.
