Only one more week of television advertisements to go!! Yippee!! There are so many, they are now running back-to-back-to-back-to-back. Obama has so much cash right now, he is trying to come up with ways to spend the money. He bought a 30-minute block in prime-time...he advertises within games on-line...he even has his own channel (73) on Dish Network.
If I had the money, I'm not saying that I would not do the exact same thing. But does there come a point when someone is so put-off by the quantity of advertising, that it is no longer effective...or even detrimental to the candidate putting it out there? I have tried locating some research about this, but have not come up with anything yet. If you know of something, please share it in the comments section.
While wondering how we survived before mute buttons...
