If you're not using Tinder to scope out the politics of potential dates, you're doing it wrong.

Tinder has released its year in review, revealing the app's top talked about politicians in the US.

To absolutely nobody's surprise, the top ten includes Donald Trump, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.

And whilst there's no sign of Hillary Clinton, Democrat women dominate the list.

Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi, Kamala Harris and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are all named, as well as Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The only Republican named aside from Trump himself is Robert Mueller, whose report into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election hit US headlines early in the year.

Greta Thunberg, being neither American nor a politician, is the list's wildcard, but what's more important than checking your date's commitment to saving the planet?

The real winner, though, is Elizabeth Warren who is the only politician to make the overall list of trending topics in 2019 alongside Lizzo, Game of Thrones and Fyre Festival.

'Green New Deal' was also, somewhat bizarrely, in the top ten things Tinder users were talking about. With the majority of users being under 25, perhaps this is the future of canvassing to Gen Z.
