GOP Hopes Voter-Vault Will Open Door to Election Victory

Hosted by  • 

National polls show the Democrats poised to take over the House and possibly the Senate. Yet, despite everything from Congressional scandals to Iraq, President Bush insists he is still confident the Republicans will win. What makes him so confident? Does he know something we don't? Will the "voter vault'--a huge database of demographic, financial and other personal information on individual voters that is the driving force behind Republican get-out-the-vote operations--control the outcome of congressional elections around the country? Will micro-targeting voters deliver the winning margins Republicans need to hold on to congressional power? Lawrence O'Donnell guest hosts.  (An expanded version of this discussion was originally broadcast earlier today on To the Point.)
