There is now a lull in the storm, as television viewers have been spared the onslaught of campaign commercials for the last few days.
There are a little more than three months before the November general election, and campaigns are regrouping and restocking the war chests after a lengthy stretch between the primary and the runoff. And as the time dragged on, the campaign ads seemed to get nastier and nastier. We keep hearing how much of a turnoff the negative ads are — yet we keep getting them. Either they are easy to do, or maybe they do have some sort of impact after all.
For now, enjoy the respite from the campaigns, because it won’t be long before they crank up again and the attacks are churned out.
