Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney is a glutton for punishment.

No one has a crystal ball to predict the upcoming election results, but one man says he's close.

A year ago, Josh Light says he introduced his web site, Politicit, which gives candidates an "it" score based on social media chatter and main stream media reports.

"You take all this data based on what people are doing and saying on the internet, we put it through a machine learning algorithm, and then it gives us a score we call an "it" score, and it correlates with election results," he said.
