Ask The Candidate
AI that tells you everything you need to know about the candidates.
There are tons of false facts and fake news.
When it comes to voting, research shows that most voters aren’t actually familiar with each candidate’s political policies and stances. It’s no surprise considering the torrent of click-baiting and “alternative facts” that circulate social media and news outlets at large.
People are quite uninformed about the candidates that they support and ultimately vote for.
In facts, an article in the New York Times, about “What Voters Want” included a quote from Daniel Oppenheimer, a psychology professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, which stated:
“Most people have no idea where most candidates stand on most issues, so they just assume that the candidate agrees with them. People will actually change their position to align with the candidates they prefer, and will also assume that candidates agree with them on important issues, even when that isn’t true.”
