User responses are absolutely not used for prediction polls, ”explains Thomas Vitiello.
This “compass” will be supplemented, as of March, by a second application specifically designed to situate you in relation to the presidential candidates who have gathered the 500 sponsorships. A device of which 20 Minutes has been involved since 2012.
