Who is likely going to win tomorrow in the Republican primary for district 4? Will it be Greg Pallen or Chris Vaughn? The PoliticIt team has set out to answer this question. Below you’ll find the current PoliticIt election forecast. The forecast was generated by calculating It Scores for each of the politicians.
What is the It Score? The It Score measure’s a politician’s digital influence. Digital influence tends to correlate with election results. So far the It Score has been used to predict election outcomes in more than 200 races with 87% accuracy (CNBC, Yahoo! Finance, Wall Street Journal’s Market Watch). The candidate with the highest It Score is likely winning in their race. How is the It Score calculated? The It Score is calculated by collecting and analyzing massive amounts of data from what people are doing and saying in the internet, social networks, and in the real world. The data collected for the calculation of these It Scores is from July 28, 2012. To learn more about the It Score click here.
