New York City, NY, United States, 2012/11/05 - At 5 PM EST on Election Day, November 6, Sibyl Vision Founder and CTO Peter Kazazes will be appearing during Fox Business channel’s special election-night coverage - SibylVision.com.
He will present Presidential-race insights—how President Obama and Romney are trending on Twitter in the run-up to the final vote—and discuss issues and patterns in the campaign found only through Sibyl Vision’s ability to analyze the Twitter commentary. This will be Mr. Kazazes’ fourth appearance on Fox Business over the past several months.
“If you compare us to the traditional pollsters, we simply cover and report more opinions. For instance, many of the major national polls you read about involve interviews of only a few hundred to several thousand voters. During the debates, we were processing several thousand tweets every 30 seconds,” says Kazazes. “Additionally, because polls cannot realistically talk with everybody, they have to make choices about whom they ask and how their responses are interpreted, creating the possibility of skewed or biased results—so-called ‘house effects.’ At Sibyl Vision, we don’t select whom we interview. We catch everything everyone is tweeting about the candidates.”
Sibyl Vision has already proven to be rather prescient in forecasting future talking points and the strengths and vulnerabilities of both the President and the Governor. To cite one example, during the Vice Presidential Debate, the technology noted a decided drop in President Obama’s sentiment positivity during Vice President Biden’s explanation of the handling of the Benghazi embassy attack, showing it to be a weakness for the President. Subsequently, Romney hammered this issue during the Second Presidential Debate.
During Mr. Kazazes’ last appearance on Fox Business’ “Varney & Co.,” he offered immediate analysis on the Third Presidential Debate, finding that likeability for both President Obama and Romney dipped negative during the encounter. During tomorrow’s appearance, Kazazes will provide up-to-the-minute commentary on trends within the Twitter tweet stream relating to the election, the candidates, voting, and whatever else proves relevant at that time.
