Carville & Luntz Team Up With Pacific Northwest Co.

Democratic pundit James Carville and Republican pollster Frank Luntz have joined forces for Vote iQ, a social networking site expressly designed for politics. The dynamic political and media consultant duo hope to help the non-partisan technology company bring “a new level” of interaction between the elected and the electorate.

Vote iQ (, debuts in early June. The plan is to give voters a one-stop site to learn where candidates stand on the issues. Until now, the company claims, “the political system has been designed for the benefit of politicians. Vote iQ reverses the equation, placing the interests of voters first.”

It’s not Hollywood, Luntz, but what the hell? Vote iQ headquarters is located south of Seattle in Gig Harbor, Washington. (Backstory: In 2009, Luntz declared he was giving up Washington politics and moving to Hollywood. “I’m tired of selling reality,” he said at the time. “Reality sucks.” But soon he returned to sucky realty. Is he aware it rains buckets in Seattle?)
