YouTube is a social media that is widely used by people to share videos that contain various types of content. Unregistered users can view videos, while registered users can upload videos and provide an unlimited number of comments. Mostly, videos on YouTube are music clips (video clips), movie trailers, educational videos, review videos, discussion videos, and debate or dialogue. Users’ comments and opinions on YouTube can be used as an indicator to see their inclination to a particular regional head candidate; therefore, comments can be a source of data on public opinion and sentiment in a social study.

Inside the candidate team for regional head elections, sentiment analysis is used as a rationale for determining policies and campaign tactics to increase the popularity of their candidate and to test whether the candidate is well accepted in the public eye.

Support Vector Machine (SVM) is a sentiment analysis model. SVM belongs to the algorithm group with the supervised technique. The three groups of the categorization used in SVM will look for the maximum value of the hyperplane which divides the test room into separate classes. SVM is a computational algorithm that requires a large operation because it includes discretization, normalization, and repeated product point operations.

It is expected that Support Vector Machine (SVM) can automatically process comment data on the debate video of regional head candidates posted on YouTube, and then continually classify sentiment analysis of people’s comments on the regional head candidates. Additionally, this study is significant to become a further reference for those interested in developing SVM.
