Microsoft today revealed their Bing 2016 Election Experience. When you search on election topics, you’ll see in-depth candidate pages coupled with a unique tool called the Bing Political Index. Bing Political Index is built by the Bing Predicts team by crunching terabytes of search and social data, together with expert candidate analysis from Ontheissues.org, through machine learning models.
To dig deeper into a candidate’s positions, hover over each candidate’s issues page to see his or her candidate score across the ten issues. You can also compare two candidates’ BPI scores at the same time.
If you want to see which candidate you are most aligned to, you can take the My BPI survey, developed by Ontheissues.org, to see approximately where your position on the issues falls in the Bing Political Index and compare it to each candidate, using the same set of criteria as the candidate and public scores. The survey is a good starting point for your deeper elections research into the issues you care about most.
