Determining candidates' views on important issues is critical in deciding whom to support and vote for; but finding their statements and votes on an issue can be laborious. In this paper we present PSST, (Political Statement and Support Tracker), a search engine to facilitate analysis of political statements and votes over time. We show that prior tools for text analysis can be combined with minimal manual processing to provide a first step in the full automation of this process.

A Survey on Computational Politics
TLDR
This survey attempts to categorize main areas in computational politics and summarize the prominent studies in one place to better understand computational politics across different and multidimensional platforms, e.g., online social networks, online forums, and political debates. Expand

Learning Algorithms for Keyphrase Extraction
TLDR
The experimental results support the claim that a custom-designed algorithm (GenEx), incorporating specialized procedural domain knowledge, can generate better keyphrases than a general-purpose algorithm (C4.5). Expand
