CNET: How your personal data is exploited to win elections and influence policy

CNET: How your personal data is exploited to win elections and influence policy. “Politicians are exploiting intimate details about your life to win elections and influence policy. Your voter history and party registration are public records that are easy to access. Your phone number, home address, salary and debt history, and how you feel about controversial issues like gun control, can be purchased cheaply. Everything you post on social media is easy to scrape and collect. And mobile apps built by the Trump and Biden presidential campaigns give them unprecedented access to your device’s location history, and a whole lot more.”
