The idea perverted by Klaus Schwab

I saw this on Jimmy Dore's channel:
Now forget for the moment that Schwab is a Bond villain wannabee that can;t help himself from broadcasting his latest plot for world domination. he's sort of on to something. We do have the data gathering power and the analytical skill to determine the public's preferences on the fly. we could literally hold elections by television by analyzing viewing choice. Not only would we know what the people think they want - or what they think they have to accept - but what they really want. And the results would be compiled so quickly and so completely it would be impossible to alter the results. In 2004 Bush would be unable to tell which race was being decided that nanosecond and Dennis Kucinich would have been President.
Disclaimer! In no way am I seriously suggesting this. Any system claiming to do this would be so perverted by bias that it would be nothing but the tool of an authoritarian dictatorship. But it is an interesting mental exercise.

that people vote for their pocket book.
Well, owning nothing, and never being able to control your own money, actually would make elections completely futile. (Even though they are pretty close to useless as it is.)
