This study investigates possible paths of emotional co-regulation between political leaders and collective emotions of the general public. We relate language style markers of political leader speeches during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic to language markers on Twitter across 187 days. Results suggest co-regulatory processes going beyond synchronization.
