The purpose of this article is to identify the attitude of social media users to the elections to the State Duma in 2021. The research is based on the approaches of leading researchers of political behavior (M. Olson, M. Lipset, Ch. Tilly), as well as domestic scientists who described the trends of political development of modern societies in the context of digital transformation (V.D. Nechaev, S.Yu. Belokonev). The authors applied structural and functional approaches, as well as the method of frames (I.A. Hoffman) and techniques of social-media predictive analytics. The authors conclude that research of the attitude of social media users to elections is quite relevant, especially in the context of the influence of the Internet space on the course and results of election campaigns. The proposed methodology for assessing the degree of public confidence in elections requires further research.
