Yes, that does worry me.
Political parties have been collecting information on voters and trying
to use it to manipulate them for years. My worry is that with on-line
tools, this is so much more *effective*.
Also I *expect* political parties to try to manipulate me, but if there
are groups I don't know of, with unknown aims, it is harder to resist.
