It has potential for the future, but Poligraft, anyway, isn't ready for prime time.
In a couple of posts on my blog, I referenced John Adams and James Madison, the Founders. Poligraft promptly gave me the data for John Adams, an Ohio state politician. The tool did correctly identify Madison, even quoting from Wikipedia. But then, with a fine-print segue, it gave me the data for a Montana state politician.
With a Daily Caller article about Colin Powell, there was a single reference to ABC, the TV network, but PG morphed that into a company called ABC Supply and gave that company's influence data.
Excuse my cynicism but in following back through their funding and team, they seem to be a pretty solidly liberal bunch. Raises my bullshit detectors substantially and, neither being a lawyer nor playing one, I head right down the "not trusting them" path
