MTV is hurling a new idea into the political and electoral process – Fantasy Elections. Yes, fantasy elections! Think about the intrigue and popularity of fantasy sports such as football, golf, NASCAR, and basketball. MTV is now bridging that gap with the anticipation of capturing the American youths (18-24) desire to be involved in the democratic process. The music based powerhouse has teamed up with some big political movers and is set to make a big stand in the election process of 2012. MTV has always had their hand in the election process, dating back to the early years of Rock The Vote. What are your thoughts on the idea of bringing the political process into the fantasy arena?
