Technology has already won the 2016 presidential campaign. Ted Cruz arguably won the Iowa Caucus because he used big data to refine on-the-ground, get-out-the-vote marketing efforts. Donald Trump, of course, uses Twitter to energize his base. The Bernie Sanders campaign used web-based crowdfunding to kickstart (pun intended) and engage his supporters.
