About this session
Over the last 20 years, through the creation of models and simulations, candidates have been striving to anticipate and predict the will of the voting public. Mobilization, persuasion strategies, and data mining of voter registration files are just a few of the newest tactics. Implementing these strategies in concert with social media and mobile technology has become the latest challenge on the political landscape.
