Gore in a landslide or Hillary trounced

A new behavior forecasting tool, "Affective Encryption Analysis," predicts that Al Gore would beat any potential Republican challenger while Hillary Clinton would be soundly defeated, according to Raw Story.

It claims to be a better mousetrap than traditional surveys as it's based on emotional responses rather than intellectual ones. According to Raw Story it was "created as a potential tool for the intelligence community." Perhaps their success rate with the tool is classified.

In any case, I'll bite. A bit.

Here's the part that unnerves me:


"Our results suggest that a potentially successful Democratic nominee may be lurking in the entertainment industry. Does this sound strange? Maybe. But when it comes to politics, we may have to get used to a future full of surprises."
Sounds more 8-ball than top secret intelligence tool. Either way, it corroborates what I already believe so I give it the thumbs up. (RawStory)
