2016 Campaign: Trump ads 70% on policy issues, Clinton’s 65% attacking Trump or talking about herself


The enemedia still doesn’t understand, and probably will never understand, why Trump won. They assume all conservatives are racist, redneck yahoos, and that’s how they see their every interaction with them. In reality, Trump was much more on-point and clear about his policy prescriptions than Clinton was. That’s why he won, not because of “racism” or “sexism.” But don’t look for these findings on CNN or in the New York Times or Washington Post.

“PROOF: Hillary Clinton Ran The MOST DEPLORABLE Presidential Campaign In Modern History,” by Eric Owens, Daily Caller, March 11/2017:

A new academic study analyzing the 2016 presidential election has determined that Hillary Clinton and her multitude of handlers ran a deplorably awful campaign that was probably the worst campaign for national office in the modern political era.

The study — entitled “Political Advertising in 2016: The Presidential Election as Outlier?” — suggests that the biggest reason Clinton lost was because she decided she did not need to advertise in several critically important states and that, when she did advertise, her ads failed to address substantive political issues.

The trio of political science researchers behind the study — Erika Franklin Fowler, Michael M. Franz, and Travis N. Ridout — observe that Clinton did not run a significant number of advertisements in three key states — Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan — until the very last, waning days of her 2016 campaign.

In Michigan and Wisconsin, for example, the Clinton campaign ran almost zero ads until just days before Election Day. Then, a few days just because the election, the number of ads Clinton ran in both Michigan and Wisconsin skyrocketed from virtually zero to over 6,000 and over 4,000 respectively.

President Donald Trump also advertised very little in Michigan and Wisconsin, but he advertised more than Clinton did in weeks leading up to the election.

Both Clinton and Trump chose to advertise far less in 2016 than either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney did in 2012.

A second reason Clinton lost, the researchers say, is because she almost utterly failed to address actual, substantive policy issues in her campaign advertisements and instead mostly either criticized Trump or spoke about herself in glowing terms.

Clinton spent fully 65 percent of her advertising time either criticizing Trump in personal terms or yammering on about herself, according to the professors.

Only about 25 percent of Clinton’s ad messages were devoted to policy issues. (The remaining 10 percent of the time, Clinton managed to talk about some combination of policy issues and either herself or Trump.)

By way of comparison, the researchers say, Trump discussed policy issues over 70 percent of the time in his ads….

    hillary’s reputation for incompetence, lying and accepting bribes became better known as the election progressed. The islamification of America did not turn out to be as popular as democrats had planned. Apparently few American other than democrats have any desire to submit to islam.

    Greed: Let’s say Hitlery raised 100 million for her campaign. Greed told her to be cheap and spend as little as possible on advertising so she could keep most of it in her pocket. Trump used mostly his own money for his campaign. And money be damned – it would take whatever it would take to get his message across. Trump spent 50 million of his own money to get his message across. And make America Great Again. Trump had no greed and believes in people and in himself and his ability to make a difference in his country.

      I believe Shillariah’s campaign is reported to have spent nearly 500 MILLION dollars on her campaign.

      • Amethyst_2012

        That is probably correct. Anything over and above what she spent, she gets to keep in her pocket.

        • IzlamIsTyranny

          500 million dollars would probably be an off-year in bribery income for the C-l-i-n-t-o-n-i-s-t-a crime family.

  • Alleged Comment

    People have to realize with the left it is about THEM not about you. All that counts to them is HOW they feel, not how you feel.

    That is why the Star*ucks fellow said he will hire 10,000 Moslem refusegees. A stupid thing to say but he felt good about saying it. The left must feel good about themselves.

    They are bunch of selfish PHONIES!!

    I could almost call Hillary a rodent as Rodham almost sounds like a rodent
    Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton

    By the time the next election rolls around, she’ll be well into her 70’s. She was stumbling, sick and whatever this last election. She’ll be in far worse health next time around. America doesn’t need Hillary. Never did.

    Besides the fact that Hillary was quite possibly the most ill-qualified candidate for the Presidency the commiecrats could dredge up, Trump ran his campaign on the same model as a successful business, outwork the competition and offer something the competition does not. There was one instance in the campaign where Trump had five appearances scheduled one day in varying locales. He had completed the second one of the day before Hillary’s bladder even kicked in.

  • knightsstrength

    You think Killary would float away with all the hot air she has. Would not stand close she probably has dangereous gases as well.
