Extracting results from a Sentiment Analysis I have the following results.
I use the following sentece

This is a nice day
Overall sentiment dictionary is :
 {'neg': 0.0, 'neu': 0.588, 'pos': 0.412, 'compound': 0.4215}
sentence was rated as  0.0 % Negative
sentence was rated as  58.8 % Neutral
sentence was rated as  41.199999999999996 % Positive
Sentence Overall Rated As Positive

Having these answers which one do I have to take into account? 
Shall I conclude that the sentence is Neutral according to the dominant result or shall I conclude that the sentence is both Neutral and Positive? Since I want to estimate a sentence as either Neutral Positive or Negative can I use only the dominant result?

    Which sentiment operator did you use to produce this result?  You might want to try the native Extract Sentiment operator which is now part of the Text Processing extension.
