The software giant is moving in the right direction with what it calls the Bing Political Index. If all goes well, this system could potentially predict who might become the next President of the United States. If you’re a betting man, you should give this system some thought.

The new service shows how the views of candidates stands with public opinion, and how they compare with your own opinion. Furthermore, the ability is there to compare candidates from within the same party or from another party.

“The Bing Predicts team built the BPI by crunching terabytes of search and social data, layered with analysis from OnTheIssues.org to determine the sentiment scores,” according to Walter Sun, leader of the Bing Predicts team and a principal applied science manager.

Bing Political Index is not all about predicting who will become the next President of the United States, but it can also help citizens decide on who to vote for when the time comes.

The Bing Political Index also lists the coming caucuses of 2016, right up to the election and to the date the new President of the United States will be sworn in. It’s a detailed page, and we are confident it will help thousands of Americans make the decision they think is correct when choosing their next leader.

As for us, we’ll just sit back and watch as it plays out. It should be interesting to see if Bing can predict who will become the next President of the United States of America.
