The Fantasy Politics Mission
Fantasy politics engages and educates the American public about its leaders and political process.
Fantasy Politics takes the immensely popular concept of fantasy sports (football, baseball, etc.) and applies it to politics. Specifically, Fantasy Politics allows users to “draft” and manage teams comprised of the “Who’s Who” of U.S. political figures. Real-life, quantifiable factors such as polling data, fundraising data, and social media followers generate fantasy points for or against each politician and team. The team has tentative partnerships in place with Intrade, Eucalyptus and OpenSecrets. The team's founder is also in discussions with CNN, Politico and other outlets about potential partnerships.
