Would be interesting to see the telco breakdown. Seeing as the BS unlocekd phone law that just recently passed. Telco’s in bed with GOP, pure tech in bed with democrats. Seems to make sense.

A lot of FReepers trash progressives as stupid, but the fact is they seized control of new media, just like they took over the education system 2 generations ago.

Using all available tools as well as you can contributed to the strength and success of our nation so applying technology to politics is a natural.

But when 3.3 per cent less democrats voted for BO in 2012 than in 2008 I tend to think the article is less chilling analysis and more steaming overhype designed to encourage the RINO culture.

Also, the high-tech world is a diverse and tolerant culture. Diversity and tolerance are not what we Republicans are known for. If we want to reach out to the technology innovators, we are going to have to change our image and also address some of their policy concerns. (More below on that.)

If you want a lot more detail about how the Obama campaign did what they did, see this article from Technology Review

In summary they matched up phone survey responses with the effect their ads and those of their fellow travelers had on the voters they wanted to convince, and then they fed whatever "message" was needed to get the voter to go their way. Then they followed up to make sure the voter voted for Obama. There is a reason they pushed for early voting - it is what really enables their method.

Interestingly, and not described in the article, is how by micro-targeting their message they, and their PAC partners, could avoid broad use of messages that would have been flagged as false or inflammatory by the media had they been widely distributed.
