Utah Company Says It Can Predict Elections

By Brian Mullahy

(KUTV) Who’s ahead?  Who’s going to win?  What’s working in a campaign?  What’s flopping?

A nascent Utah political data company may have the answers, long before conventional wisdom kicks in, or the election is over.

The name of the company is PoliticIt, pronounced Poli-ticket, made up of young, brainy, and seemingly confident twenty-somethings, most of them recent graduates from Utah State University.

“We don’t have poli sci degrees,” said 25-year-old CEO Josh Light, in an open-collar shirt, tail out, and blue jeans. “We don’t know what’s going on in these races, okay.”

Light had never even been to a political convention until this year, when PoliticIt decided to be a presence at the state GOP and Democratic gatherings.
