It’s Already Working

Friends you have to buy. Enemies you can get for free Last week, before my relapse, I wrote an article on how Tom Steyer and Michael Bloomberg were actually performing a public service with their carpet bombing of the nation’s airwaves with their TV ads.Not two days after it went up, Rachel Maddow showed a mind blowing graphic on her show that dealt exclusively with what I had written about. God knows, her research capabilities are far superior to mine, and my appreciation for her efforts and results is boundless. Basically, what she found is what I stated, that it’s working. First, a quick recap of the generalities, and then a bit deeper of a dive into some interesting specifics. Rachel’s research showed that during the reporting period that they looked at, Trump had spent just over $6 million in advertising. This was more than just two “mainstream” candidates on the Democratic side, Andrew Yang, whi spent I believe about $8 million, and Mayor Pete, who topped $10 million. But the graphic had to be reconfigured to show Steyer’s insane $67 million in advertising, and Bloomberg’s truly ridiculous $137 million. Nevermind the Democratic field, between the two of them, Bloomberg and Steyer outspent His Lowness by more than 30-1! In my article, I highlighted the fact that both Steyer and Bloomberg were spending heavily in states that were not early voting primary states. In fact, Mike Bloomberg has forsaken the first four primaries, and started advertising in the Super Tuesday states and beyond. I noted in the article that this was beneficial, not just to Steyer and Bloomberg, but to all the Democratic states, because the ads opened with a heavy slap at Il Douche, before switching to the specific candidates, and were running in states where Trump’s presence was light, if not non existent. This meant that the ads were framing Trump negatively, and often, with no offsetting response from Trump. But thanks to Rachel, and some recent polling, we can now see exactly how this works, at least in Steyer’s case. Over the weekend, Tom Steyer pulled a rabbit out of his ass and qualified for tomorrow night’s debate. He did it by grabbing a 12% share in Nevada, and a 15% second place share in South Carolina. Those were two impressive hauls, but with all thing, the devil is in the details, and it’s easily understandable when you do a little comparison shopping. In both Iowa and New Hampshire, Steyer is pootling along at a less than stunning 3-4% in most polls. This is because while they may not be spending as much, all of the major candidates are up and running with ads of their own in both states, and the local networks and stations are reporting on each candidates live appearances in the state. Basically, his message is being diluted by the advertising and news coverage that the other candidates are receiving. But n Nevada and South Carolina, Steyer has an empty field in front of him. As most of you know, I live in Vegas, and it’s impossible to go through an hour without getting slapped with at least one Steyer ad. And since there a certain number of people who will respond to a poll question by saying the first name that comes to mind on the subject, his […]
