Democrats push to redeploy Obama’s voter database

If you voted this election season, President Obama almost certainly has a file on you. His vast campaign database includes information on voters’ magazine subscriptions, car registrations, housing values and hunting licenses, along with scores estimating how likely they were to cast ballots for his reelection.

And although the election is over, Obama’s database is just getting started.

Democrats are pressing to expand and redeploy the most sophisticated voter list in history, beginning with next year’s gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey and extending to campaigns for years to come. The prospect already has some Republicans worried.

“It’s always hard to play catch-up,” said Peter Pasi, a Republican direct marketer who worked on Rick Santorum’s presidential primary campaign. “It can be done by 2016. I’m much more doubtful it can happen by 2014.”

1. Good idea. Very good idea. I am in that database, I got a survey from the Obama people.

I live in a deep blue state but will continue to contribute to any effort to expand the database, particularly into red states. You folks in Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, Arizona, I hope the calvary will arrive to help you in your fight soon.

3. To Peter Rasi

 

You might catch up to the current technology by 2016, but if you fail to dump tens of millions of dollars into the project right now, you'll never catch up to where the technology on the Democratic side will have evolved to by 2016.

That's the mistake executives always make. They always see it as statix rather than as a moving target.
