Skip to comments.Freeper Survey: Are You Seeing More Pro-Romney Ads,Or More Pro-Obama Ads In Your State?
Posted on 07/31/2012 5:39:22 PM PDT by Reality_News
As Obama appeares to be running low on funds,odds are you may be seeing less Obama ads bashing Romney over the Romney ads telling viewers how bad the economy has been over the last four years. Being a Florida resident,I can tell you that it seems that Romney's Anti-Obama ads are shown much more frequent than the "Foward" Obama ads. Is this the same scenario in your state?
Pro-Obama ads during the Olympics. I’ve seen a single RNC, anti-Obama ad run only
a couple of times.
now how did this post come up twice? could the moniter please eliminate the duplicate?
We are in NC as well as SC. Definitely seeing more Obama ads in NC. Not so many of either in SC yet.
I’d say Romney.
I’ve “seen” no ads at all in Memphis. I’ve heard a few Obama PAC ads on the radio, mostly during Rush.
Here in NC I would give a slight edge to Romney in the last several days.

Strangely enough, Obama. But, probably cuz they would come from Milwaukee. I change the channel anytime I see one start. Wonder if that is noticeable. Could be interesting.
I’m in the people’s republic of Pittsburgh, so I have to give this one to Obama.
Blah. That left a bad taste in my mouth.
I rarely, if ever, watch network (or any) TV.
That said, I live in Maryland. Political ads aren’t too common, since the Democommies have such a hold here, neither side bothers much with ads. Sometimes you’ll see ads for local candidates, but presidential, practically never.
I’m seeing “stealth” Obama ads on Yahoo and other sites. Many “refinance” companies start ads that say something similar to: “The President has made refinance possible if you do this simple thing!”
I doubt that most people realize the limited power of the President to control financial institutions. (At least I hope!)
My guess is this means Obama's ads are not moving the needle here.
I dont have cable TV. BLISS!
But I do live in the most lefty part of Grand Rapids, Michigan, where you are more likely to see rainbow flags than American.
No one has any Obama signage in their yards (maybe too early?). A couple of those goofy Obama 2012 bumper stickers on a hybrid here and there, but really nothing else.
I responded on the other post.
About even steven. But our stations are Illinois AND Iowa.
Also... some may be buying cable time...but it’s hard to tell.
I have not seen any pro-Obama ads. I have see about as many pro-Romney ads as anti-Romney ads.
He speaks with forked tongue! He can not be trusted to be telling the truth ....about anything of importance, IMO. Obama is not telling the truth about campaign funds. As often as he is having fundraisers how could he not have an enormous war chest?
Here in the Cleveland OH area most of what I get is Obama interfering with my TV viewing pleasure telling me how wonderful he is. Disgusting.
Here in WA...only seen/noticed O ads. But I don’t watch that much TV.
Not seeing a lot of R bumper stickers, signs or actually anyone admitting to ‘liking’ Willard.
I work primarily w/ very conservative folks. Our votes will not count for Pres..but hope to get a new Gov and new Senator.
Are you kidding?
Here in Florida, Obama Hussein 24/7.
Almost nothing for Mitt.
I expect all this to change when Romney can pour ad money on the air!
Obama will be booted right out of Florida, trust me!
Red flyover county of midstate PA—wouldn’t know because I probably watch about 3 hours of TV a week max.
have only seen obamanation ads, but i live in illinois, Land of Lincoln.
there is something around here called ‘chicago values’. u know, what al capone had.
if i was mittens, i would not spend a dime in this state, don’t know why the kenyan is.
I am in Broward Co FL otherwise known as the “Most Liberal Place on Earth”. Just today I saw one of those Cafe Press style indie bumper stickers that used the “O” logo with the words “epic fail”. It was placed on a road sign with a forward arrow on it (haha). Clearly this is the work of a young person which gives me great hope.
Here in southwest Ohio Romney has the edge on ads and some of them are very good!
Here in California:
I have seen two Obama ads, both during the Olympics.
None for Romney.
I have been wondering, why is Obama bothering to spend money in California? This early??
More Obama ads here in Virginia.... far more.
Exactly... No state is more a lock for him than California.
Here in Ohio it’s Pro Romney and Anti Obama ads 90% of the time except for the ad that has Obama lying about saying that he didn’t say “you didnt build that seems like they play that one alot !
Floridian here. I don’t normally watch much tv but i’ve been visiting a family member at the hospital the last couple days and had no choice. During the times i was paying attention, the ads seemed pretty even.
As an aside, like i said, i don’t watch much tv and i certainly don’t watch any of the evening newscasts if i can help it.. But today i couldn’t help it. So after the Olympics Brian Williams came on and at first i thought the show was okay, but then he talked about Romney’s trip abroad being filled with gaffes and proceeded to show a Romney staffer chewing out the media for badgering him about the so-called gaffes. Afterwards Williams talked about a Republican retiring today, lamenting that he was one of the few remaining moderates in the Republican party.
Anyway, of all the Obama ads i saw today, i think the one with Brian Williams was probably the most effective. Though to be fair, i’m sure the other network anchors provided equally good (and completely free) advertizing for Obama.
Two Romneys always followed by one whiny Obeyme in deflect and deny mode.
More pro-Obama ads in VA but anti-Obama ads are picking up.
That evil Romney made a profit at Bain
I just got a donation email from Dick Durbin, “donate to save our country from the Tea Party and Mitt Romney”
Here in Maine, I haven’t seen any Obama ads, but I saw my first Romney ad about an hour ago on an NBC affiliate in Bangor, Maine (during their Olympic coverage).
It showed a homeless person with a sign made out of a white bed sheet which said, “Where did the stimulus money go?”
The commercial showed Obama bragging about the jobs he supposedly created, followed by images of closed factories and unemployment lines. The RNC created the ad.
Perhaps this ad is being aimed at neighboring New Hampshire, a battleground state. Meanwhile, Maine, like Nebraska, splits it’s electoral college votes. Maine only has two congressional districts and four electoral votes.....if Obama wins southern Maine (1st congressional district) and Romney northern Maine (second congressional district), they each get one electoral vote. The statewide winner gets the other two electoral votes. So, in theory, Romney could pick up one electoral vote in Maine.
I heard that as a result of the 2010 Census, the GOP will likely pick up 20 electoral votes because of the loss of congressional districts in blue states and the addition of congressional districts in red states.
60/40. Obamao to Romney
Near Madistan WI
I live in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. Pro-Obama ads? Surely, you jest. Heck, one hardly knows he’s running. Oh, Joe Manchin and Nick Rahall sure know, ergo, their absence from the national convention!
None of either, except, of course, nationally broadcast ads which would be stupid to comment on state by state.
Who is paying you for your survey?
About fifty-fifty on Philly TV in south Jersey - but we’ve been inundated for weeks with Romney phone calls - almost daily - strange in a state which the conventional wisdom says is sure to go for Obama - unless Romney’s polling is showing him something else, or maybe his VP is going to come from NJ - just sayin’.......
A friend in PA is seeing Obama ads when watching streaming shows on Hulu.
In Va Beach almost all i see are obama ads.
On web pages, it seems like I see 90% Obama ads. I guess I need to find and delete the Obama cookie.
When the MSM has its tongue so far up his nether orifice, it's hard to tell what is mindless adulation from his media syncophants and what is an ad.
OTOH, when CNN played Piers whatshisname's interview of Romney, I think they did it to show what a radical Romney was, not to showcase his comments that 'we did not need any more gun laws because they would not do any good (stopping nuts like the one in Aurora)'.
I'm not a Romney fan, based on his past record in Mass., but he said all the right things if you were Conservative, and all the wrong ones if you were a Liberal, and I think CNN showed the clip to paint him badly 'cause their base would have taken it that way.
It seems like every time I log onto my hotmail account I see an ad featuring Michelle or her husband and I click them off...then I get an offer from hotmail to upgrade so I don’t have ads. $20 a year I think...is it worth it?
Switches back and forth here in my part of NC and last night it was mostly Romney. Frankly I think they have nothing to worry about in NC and could probably spend more elsewhere.
Idaho. No ads. :) If either candidate spends a dime here, he is an idiot.
