For common people, maybe.

For important people it happen already


"Ada is a complex computer algorithm that the campaign was prepared to
publicly unveil after the election as its invisible guiding hand. Named
for a female 19th-century mathematician — Ada, Countess of Lovelace —
the algorithm was said to play a role in virtually every strategic
decision Clinton aides made, including where and when to deploy the
candidate and her battalion of surrogates and where to air television
ads — as well as when it was safe to stay dark."

I see a problem in this approach.

First, it is not strategic; it is only tactics.
It don't consider people has goals and will learn from past experiences.
They will change their reaction to the same input in an attempt to
increase their satisfaction (obtain their goals).

The AI should be able to understand people mutable motives and develop a
campaign program with policies aimed to obtain the goals of the people
and the leader running.

I think this type of AI will need a lot more work to be attained.
