Carville and Luntz Join Vote iQ Board of Advisors
James Carville and Frank Luntz back new revolutionary political social networking site
Vote iQ empowers citizens and engages politicians
SEATTLE, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Two of the country's leading media heavyweights – Democrat James Carville and Republican Frank Luntz – have joined Vote iQ, the nation's first major social networking site expressly designed for politics. The two political and media luminaries will help the nonpartisan technology company bring a new level of interaction between the elected and the electorate. Vote iQ (www.voteiq.com), which will debut in early June, gives voters a one-stop site to find out where candidates stand on the issues. Until now, the political system has been designed for the benefit of politicians. Vote iQ reverses the equation, placing the interests of voters first.
"Vote iQ will revolutionize the relationship between voters and their elected leaders," noted Vote iQ's CEO and founder Jim Tisch. "Voters want a constant dialogue with their political leaders, and Vote iQ provides just that opportunity."
With respect to politicians at all-time lows – polls show 85 percent of Americans do not trust their elected leaders -- the time has never been better for a nonpartisan platform like Vote iQ, which breaks down the walls that separate voters and politicians and gives voters the opportunity to gain control of the political process. Voters interested in the hot button political topics of the day -- the economy, healthcare, taxes, Tea Party, and other issues -- can search the website for like-minded (or antithetical) viewpoints. A voter may find a new politician rises to represent their interests through matching technology, voting records, and articles on issues and politicians.
James Carville, who appears regularly on CNN's Situation Room and other news programs, began building his reputation as a brilliant campaign strategist in the mid-1980s. His leading role in Clinton's winning campaign of 1992 was documented in the Academy Award–nominated film, The War Room. He currently is a professor of politics at Tulane University.
Dr. Frank Luntz is a highly sought out American political consultant and pollster. Luntz has been an integral part of many high profile campaigns for nearly two decades. His most recent work has been with Fox News, but Frank is also a frequent commentator and analyst for many media outlets, as well as running focus groups after presidential debates. Luntz has also authored books focusing on the power of strategic language and is considered a foremost expert on effective political communication.
"We are excited to have the help of both of these powerhouses," said Vote iQ Vice President Rick Shenkman. "With them on board, people will know that Vote iQ can be trusted to take a strictly neutral position on issues. Trust is critical to our success. Voters need to know we don't have our thumb on the scale."
