Like others, my instinct, when I first saw this ad last week, was that it was brutally effective. Well now a national focus group has proved this instinct correct:
“The ad which focuses on Governor Palin’s record regarding the treatment of wildlife in Alaska seemed to strike a chord with voters,” commented Glenn Kessler, president and CEO, HCD Research. “The recent ads from both parties have had little impact among voters. This is the first ad in over a month that seems to have broken through,” he added.
The ad, from Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund, has been running in Michigan and Florida, and word is that it will soon go up in other swing states as well. Want to keep this extremely powerful and effective ad on the air? Throw them some change.
