STEM is the star of Election Day 2012

Karen Goulart Karen Goulart Profile: Karen Goulart

This just might go down as the year they really put the “science” in political science. From geophysicists to data scientists, nerds ruled Election Day 2012 with dead-on outcome predictions and astoundingly (and a little startlingly) effective voter mobilizations methods. And not a lick of it had to do with punditry, gut feelings or intuition. Nope, it was all about STEM – science, technology, engineering and math; and as one blogger pointed out, “Math don’t lie.” (But grammar is still important, kids!) ┬áThis week’s SearchCIO.com Searchlight points its beam behind the scenes, past the political posturing, beyond the blustering to the cool stats, analysis and tech that drove the election.
