It's not improbable at all. Data like that is highly valued by all marketers and they'd love to get that kind of data. So I can see an incumbent using his advantages as an incumbent to use it. It's bound to happen, that's why it should never be allowed to be such a broad use. It will eventually get abused. You trust the state and politicians way too much to be considered a libertarian or conservative. You're very naive. Including about marketers.

I mean why do you think all those contests are being used by companies? To get your email to market to you. More data in a profile is always a plus. That's how Obama's campaign used it, to more easily target certain groups with certain promotions.

Makes total sense and highly probable.
