    Hi!

    Your problem is not specific to text mining. It is a basic distinction between two-class and multi-class classification. 

    Many learning algorithms like logistic regression or support vector machines only support two-class (e. g. yes-no) problems. Here you're trying to predict three classes.

    Naive Bayes, Decision Trees and other tree based methods, Neural Networks support multiple classes, but not all of them are good in text classification.

    Another approach could be changing the label (target attribute) to a numeric score (e. g. -1 for negative, 0 for neutral, 1 for positive), building models that predict this score, and then finding good thresholds for deriving the classes from the numeric prediction.
