Posted on 10/26/2020 12:43:48 AM PDT by SmokingJoe
Former Vice President Joe Bidens campaign has shelled out more money for television and digital advertising than any presidential candidate in the nations history, the Hill reported Friday. Bidens campaign has spent more than $582 million on television advertising since launching his campaign last year, according to data from the nonpartisan firm Advertising Analytics. In just the last week, Bidens team spent $45 million on air, the article said.
The amount surpasses President Donald Trumps campaign, which reportedly spent $342 million over the past two years.
The two sides dropped $160 million on television and digital ads in just the past seven days. Trump spent slightly more than Biden on Facebook and Google advertising, the data shows $14 million versus about $12.7 million, the Hill article continued.

I thought Trump was broke, according to the media, and Brad Parscale stole it all.
Wall Street is funding Biden by 5 to 1
Trump pays less and gets more.
When relegating oneself to a basement near 24/7, logic dictates the idiot needs to get his message out via television ads, yes?
It’s all he’s got.
Apart from the media and big tech if course.
But I’ll go for good old fashioned campaign rallies like Trump is doing anytime.
That trumps a basement approach every single time. Not that anyone has ever hidden in their basement and won before.
Biden is also squandering alot more on campaign consultants for these dinosaur media ad buys as well as fundraising fees (as much as 40% or more of every dollar raised). That’s not even counting the frauds of his associated grifters like Lincoln Project.
he can do this because he has no travel/event expenses being hidden in the basement.
The media gives 100’s of billions in in-kind contributions and still can’t defeat Trump.
Hopefully this election is the media’s waterloo.
We need an honest media for this country to survive.
I suspect the MSM is also giving Bidens campaign extra ad time at no charge. They are effectively the communications arm of the Democratic Party.
The entire MSM is a great big campaign ad for Hiden Joe, so this $582 million ad buy by Biden is not going to move the needle by much.
Why have they been wasting so much $$$ on Fox News? Do they really think they will change any viewers mind? They way they mock us for watching Faux News? Money to burn.
$$$$ is critical to campaigns.
The GOP is kidding themselves that the left is apathetic. We are being out spent.
Campaign rallies are great, but the largest such rally would be between 30,000-40,000 people. Definitely a huge indication of enthusiasm, but also just that - an indication. It is likely that this may be a close election - yes, on our side people are excited for President Trump and the Libs are not excited about Biden. The Libs are definitely NOt motivated by Biden, which may be why they are not going for his rallies (plus fear of COVID). However, while they may not be excited about Biden, they are absolutely seething in hatred for President Trump. That is their real motivation and it may - may - result in them voting for him even though they may not necessarily fill a stadium for him?
Possible proof of this - most of Bidens contributions are actually not from big money wallstreet, Hollywood, far left billionaires etc. The average contribution (according to them; which may be a lie, but this is what they claim) is $44. If that is true, that means there are a number of people contributing money who may not necessarily be going for rallies.
The only way Republicans win is by voting as if President Trump is behind. Vote the same way they voted in 2016 when every poll was claiming Hillary would win. Vote as the silent majority - because we dont want that to be turned against us. Sure, we KNOW President Trump is ahead - so it doesnt hurt to go out and vote like hes behind. Also, we all need to know its not about the POTUS only - the Senate is also up for grabs. BOTH have to be maintained on our side to make a difference (I dont think its possible to recapture the House, but we need to keep the Senate and the Presidency).
Because I can assure you of one thing - in November there will be a political party that will be absolutely devastated. Lets make sure its not the GOP.
Now, I fully expect some will try and shoot the messenger, but who cares. What matters is that people vote like their lives depend on it, because I know that on the Left they really have a lot of hatred for us on the Right and that hatred doesnt need to attend rallies. I
