(Yahoo)   Republican IT gurus are hard at work trying to build their own version of the Obama campaign's Narwhal system and expect that by 2016 they should have the systems and technology in place to win the 2012 Presidential election   ( divider line

This system will have the capacity to unskew 60 trillion polls a second.  It will be the world's first terraderp system.

If they manage to get this technology in place, there's no way Obama will be re-elected in 2016.

This is an incredibly low tech operation.

You take your list of likely voters in each precinct and you put someone behind the registration desk. That person marks off each voter as they come in, and at certain points during the day, you call the people who haven't come in yet.

it's not hard to figure out. It's just labor intensive, and unfortunately for the GOP you have to put people who can have the physical stamina to sit behind a desk and the ability to hear the names as their called out.

spongeboob: JolobinSmokin: I live in OKlahoma.  I'm the only democrat I've ever met.

Anadarko has to have some Democrats I mean whites only make up 41% of the population.

Don't be racist.

Had I known this fact when he lost I would have added sparklers to my ensemble for the "I'm A Shark" live dance performance in front of their home the night of the election.  I also might have been motivated enough to remain sober enough to drive to the location and actually follow through with it.

Karac: You can shove a couple hundred volts worth of new technology through the republican platform, but it won't make that turd smell any better.

This electorate wouldn't "VOOM VOTE REPUBLICAN" if you ran 4 million volts through it! It's bleeding de-MISED! It's a stiff - bereft of life it rests in peace; if you hadn't passed voter ID laws and gerrymandered the House to oblivion, it'd be pushing up daisies!

Hey, remember this gem of wisdom from Peggy Noonan?

The secret of Mr. Obama is that he isn't really very good at politics, and he isn't good at politics because he doesn't really get people. The other day a Republican political veteran forwarded me a hiring notice from the Obama 2012 campaign. It read like politics as done by Martians. The "Analytics Department" is looking for "predictive Modeling/Data Mining" specialists to join the campaign's "multi-disciplinary team of statisticians," which will use "predictive modeling" to anticipate the behavior of the electorate. "We will analyze millions of interactions a day, learning from terabytes of historical data, running thousands of experiments, to inform campaign strategy and critical decisions."

(Source is the Wall Street Journal, which Fark does not allow to be linked)

While the nerds may know how to gather and analyze the data, I am not convinced that the GOP leadership will be able to utilize it to its fullest potential.  They're like Bill O'Reilly, who doesn't get that the "Newsfax" sent to his home printer is not a fax.  ("It was easier to tell Bill we were faxing it to him than it was to explain that we were remotely printing it to his home printer.  This is actually a familiar pattern with Bill. It's often simpler to let him believe something erroneously than it is to correct him.")

"Those dhimmicrats think they're so smart because they can wwebsite as on the internet, but they don't know squat about the American people like I do.  The joke's on them because I can just hire some nerds of my own, set up my own campaign MySpace, pay for a few thousand Tweeter friends, and then where is their internet now?"

maybe if they switched off the white list only settings they would get better responses. Also, they should update from that token ring network

Hey, GOP? You know what would be a good way to get more people to polls?

Early voting, vote by mail, not implementing voter ID laws

Oh... wait...

Maybe they'll be able to push Nixon over the top in 1960 as well.
