2014 MID-TERM ELECTIONS
« on: October 09, 2014, 10:07:16 PM »
Are the REPUBLICANS about to gain control of
BOTH houses of CONGRESS? Here is a bit of
video and an article from libtard CNN which
begrudgingly all but calls the SENATE for repubs:

Senate math seems impossible to some Democrats

By Jake Tapper

"It's going to be bad," the consultant said. "Not 2010 bad, but bad." Even hapless House GOP candidates running against popular incumbents are proving competitive.



Washington (CNN) -- Four weeks away from the 2014 midterm elections and even some Democratic operatives struggle to imagine a scenario where they retain control of the U.S. Senate. The terrain and current momentum seem all but overwhelming and against them.

A new CNN/ORC poll out Thursday morning suggests a Republican lead over a Democratic incumbent, this time in Alaska, and does nothing to calm Democrats' nerves.

"If you put a gun to my head, I guess I'd say that we're going to lose the Senate," one Democratic consultant told me in a moment of anonymous candor.

Quote
Remember that the GOP only need win three of these and the most recent polling, which could clearly change between now and election day, suggests extremely close margins or a Republican advantage in all of them:
· Alaska (Republican up 50-44 in CNN / ORC poll)
· Arkansas (Republican up 45-41 in CBS / NYT / YouGov poll)
· Louisiana (Republican up 47-41 in CBS / NYT YouGov poll)
· Colorado (Democrat up 48-45 in CBS / NYT / YouGov poll)
· Iowa (42-42 draw in Loras College poll)
· New Hampshire (Democrat up 48-41 in CBS / NYT / YouGov poll)
· North Carolina (Democrat up 47-45 in USA Today / Suffolk poll)

… it's OBOLA … and his hyper-inflated
so-called PROGRESSIVE agenda … the
open borders, the GENDER DENIAL,
Common Core BS, ENDLESS WAR, ENDLESS
LIES, WAR on WHITES, and all the rest.
Even former dyed-in-the-wool democrats
are switching to the more sensible "R" side …
in a lesser-of-two-evils gambit.

Obama disappears ahead of midterms

BY BRIAN HUGHES | OCTOBER 7, 2014

President Obama, the central figure of the 2014 midterms, is nowhere to be seen in competitive Senate battlegrounds, and that’s just the way Democrats want it.

For years, Democrats grumbled that Obama wasn’t actively involved in the contests that would determine control of Congress, selectively deciding when to help liberal candidates hoping to bask in his star power.

Now, as Republicans turn the November elections into a referendum on the president’s policies, Democrats are saying "thanks but no thanks" to an assist from Obama.

The White House has received the message.

Obama this week is traveling to New York City, Connecticut, San Francisco and Los Angeles to raise cash for the Democratic Party, limiting himself to liberal enclaves rather than risk damaging Democratic candidates attempting to show their independence from a president with approval ratings that hover around 40 percent.

Missing are the headline-grabbing events where Obama shares the stage with a Democratic candidate hoping for a bounce from some presidential backslapping.

It’s a humbling experience for a president who once insisted that “we are not a collection of red states and blue states” and banked that his political brand could transcend ideological divides.

"If President Obama made more decisions that more people agreed with, he would be more popular and Democrats would be in better position this November.”

Spoiler Alert: Third Party Candidates Could Swing Elections

BY BRIAN COHN

OCTOBER 8, 2014

As fights for control of state and national offices continue to dominate the news, the bulk of public attention is drawn to candidates from the two major parties. But this midterm cycle, third party candidates could have a real impact, despite our overwhelmingly two-party system. In a handful of elections, third party hopefuls could potentially play the role of spoiler and ultimately decide the victor.

Many Senate races around the country have received extra scrutiny this year due to the heated competition for control of the Senate, but Georgia’s open-seat Senate race has the potential to be one of the most interesting elections of the cycle. The Republican candidate, David Perdue, is a former CEO of Reebok and Dollar General and the cousin of former governor Sonny Perdue. The Democratic candidate, Michelle Nunn, is the CEO of the Points of Light charity organization and the daughter of longtime Georgia senator, Sam Nunn. Amanda Swafford, a Libertarian candidate, has the ability to punch this close election into overtime, as a candidate in Georgia must have a simple majority of the vote to win the office. Currently, Perdue’s prospects are looking favorable. But if Swafford can draw enough votes away from him, a distinct possibility according to HuffPost’s current prediction, a runoff election between Perdue and Nunn would take place in early January. If a runoff took place, it could be a deciding factor for Senate control.

In North Carolina, a major swing state, things are looking positive for Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan, with Sean Haugh playing spoiler for the GOP’s candidate and current North Carolina Speaker of the House, Thom Tillis. Haugh might just help Hagan win a tough re-election; he is a Libertarian candidate who ran for this position in 2002 and only received 1.45 percent of the vote. He is now polling at around 5 percent, enough to actually swing the state away from Tillis. In truth, Haugh’s bid is rarely taken seriously. His campaign mostly consists of casual talks in YouTube videos, and he was not invited to participate in a debate for the Senate seat. Still, even though the current pizza delivery driver has virtually no shot at winning, his minute effect could be just enough to tip the scales in favor of Hagan.

The 2014 governor races also have their fair share of third party candidate spoiler potential. In Arizona, the Republican Doug Ducey faces off against Democrat Fred DuVal. But Libertarian candidate Barry Hess has real power to determine the outcome of this election. Currently, Ducey is only about two points ahead of DuVal, and Hess is projected to get roughly 7 percent of the vote. The election is so tight that, depending on voter turnout, Hess could turn this election into a nail-biter by taking votes away from Ducey. Since Democrats have a serious chance of obtaining a majority of governorships this year, Arizona has become a top priority.

The Florida governor’s race is also extremely close with the GOP incumbent Rick Scott taking on the now-Democrat Charlie Crist in a tight election. However, Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie may pave the way for Crist to eke it out by drawing conservative votes away from Scott. This election has huge implications for the future of the Affordable Care Act in Florida, and Wyllie has the potential to incidentally score the Democrats a big win. Rick Scott has been actively addressing many controversial issues including climate change and abortion with a conservative slant, so a Rick Scott loss in November would not only be a political victory, but also a policy triumph for the Democrats.

Moreover, Georgia, in addition to its competitive Senate race, has a close governor’s race featuring the incumbent Republican Nathan Deal and Democratic candidate and the grandson of President Carter, Jason Carter. This race could also be jolted into extra innings if Libertarian and nanotechnologist, Andrew Hunt, can draw enough votes away from Deal. Currently, Deal is polling around 46 percent, not enough to win re-election outright. A potential runoff between Carter and Deal (along with the Senate runoff) would have money and media scrutiny pouring into Georgia in the months following Election Day. If Carter is able to win out over Deal, Medicaid expansion would probably be a top priority, giving healthcare coverage to about 650,000 uninsured Georgians.

Lastly, Maine also has an interesting governor’s race, which includes the Republican incumbent Paul LePage, Democrat Mike Machaud and Independent Eliot Cutler. Unlike Arizona, Florida and Georgia, the third party candidate in the Maine governor’s race will likely draw voters away from the Democratic candidate. Michaud’s campaign manager even said, “A vote for Cutler is a vote for LePage.” This race has drawn much attention, as Michaud hopes to be the first openly gay candidate elected governor. Cutler could definitely only play spoiler in this race because he is only polling at about 13 percent. Cutler unsuccessfully ran against LePage in 2010 and nearly won, but his second try is turning out to be a tad lackluster, which could spell trouble for Mike Michaud and the Democrats. Still, as voters begin to realize that Cutler will not win, they will likely migrate toward Michaud.

Ultimately, as the midterm season comes to a head, third party candidates have the power to tangibly impact elections in important battleground states. Libertarian and independent candidates rarely get a chance to hold high-ranking state and federal offices, but that does not mean those contenders are inconsequential. So, while some frontrunners may appear to be approaching victory, underrated third party candidates may impact elections just enough to reshape the landscape and potentially change the political tide of the country.

Courts reject Texas and Wisconsin voter ID laws
10 October 2014 Last updated at 11:14 ET

Two US courts have struck down largely Republican-backed voter ID laws in Texas and Wisconsin just weeks before November's midterm elections.

Critics have argued the laws are illegal poll taxes on the poor, often racial minorities who lean Democratic.

The ruling could spare millions of registered voters in both states from being forced to acquire photo ID in order to cast their ballots.

The Texas Republican attorney general has vowed to appeal against the ruling.

Considered one of the harshest laws in the nation, the Texas law was previously derided by the US Department of Justice as blatant discrimination.

"We are extremely heartened by the court's decision, which affirms our position that the Texas voter identification law unfairly and unnecessarily restricts access," US Attorney General Eric Holder wrote in a statement. `

"We are also pleased that the Supreme Court has refused to allow Wisconsin to implement its own restrictive voter identification law."

Both laws were approved in 2011 and have become political flashpoints.

On Thursday, US District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramosf ruled the Texas law "creates an unconstitutional burden on the right to vote, has an impermissible discriminatory effect against Hispanics and African-Americans, and was imposed with an unconstitutional discriminatory purpose".
...
Also on Thursday, the US Supreme Court issued a one-page order blocking implementation of Wisconsin's voter ID law.

Three of the court's nine justices - Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas - dissented.

Following the ruling, Wisconsin Attorney General JB Van Hollen wrote in a statement he considered the law constitutional and "nothing in the Court's order suggests otherwise".

Obamacare website won’t reveal insurance costs for 2015 until after election

States with key Senate races face double-digit premium hikes

Those planning to purchase health insurance on the Obamacare exchange will soon find out how much rates have increased — after the Nov. 4 election.

Enrollment on the Healthcare.gov website begins Nov. 15, or 11 days after the midterm vote, and critics who worry about rising premium hikes in 2015 say that’s no coincidence. Last year’s inaugural enrollment period on the health-care exchange began Oct. 1.

Voter fraud in the U.S. ? No that can't be true ... Voter impersonation rampant!

North Carolina Finds Over 35,000 Cases of Possible Voter Fraud

The North Carolina Board of Elections found just over 35,000 possible cases of voter fraud in the state. If verified, the findings will provide proof of significant voter fraud and demonstrate the need for voter ID laws to protect the integrity of our elections.

ABC News WTVD-TV in Raleigh-Durham, NC reported on the results of the study:


Initial from the Board presented to the Joint Legislative Elections Oversight Committee Wednesday showed:

765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, date of birth, and last four digits of the social security number were registered in N.C. and another state, and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.

35,750 voters with the same first and last name and date of birth were registered in N.C. and another state, and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.

In addition, the Board of Elections “discovered 81 deceased voters that had voter activity after they died.”

U.S. Repeals Propaganda Ban, Spreads Government-Made News to Americans
BY John Hudson   
JULY 14, 2013

For decades, a so-called anti-propaganda law prevented the U.S. government's mammoth broadcasting arm from delivering programming to American audiences. But on July 2, that came silently to an end with the implementation of a new reform passed in January. The result: an unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption in a reform initially criticized as a green light for U.S. domestic propaganda efforts. So what just happened?

Is Congress Really Authorizing US Propaganda at Home?
 Progressives are worked up over a new "brainwashing" law for misguided reasons.

—By Adam Weinstein

| Tue May 22, 2012 6:00 AM EDT

Late last Friday, Buzzfeed reporter and Rolling Stone contributor Michael Hastings broke what looked like a big scoop: Congress was quietly planning to lift a 64-year-old law preventing the US government from using propaganda on its own citizenry. Before the House passed its defense budget bill Friday afternoon, Hastings reported, a bipartisan group of congressmen tacked on an amendment that would "essentially neutralize" a set of time-tested guidelines "that had been passed to protect U.S. audiences from our own government's misinformation campaigns."
...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Hastings_(journalist)

Michael Mahon Hastings (January 28, 1980 – June 18, 2013) was an American journalist, author, contributing editor to Rolling Stone and reporter for BuzzFeed.[4] He was raised in New York, Canada, and Vermont, and attended New York University.
...
Hastings became a vocal critic of the surveillance state during the investigation of reporters by the U.S. Department of Justice in 2013, referring to the restrictions on the freedom of the press by the Obama administration as a "war" on journalism.[5] His last story, "Why Democrats Love to Spy On Americans", was published by BuzzFeed on June 7.[6][7] Hastings died in a fiery high-speed automobile crash on June 18, 2013, in Los Angeles, California.[8] Blue Rider Press posthumously published his only novel, The Last Magazine (2014), a year after his death.[9]

Hotline's Senate Race Rankings: Republicans on the Brink

Senate control looks tantalizingly close for the GOP,
but Democrats still have a fair chance to hold the line.


October 13, 2014 Three weeks before Election Day, Republicans are on the brink of winning the Senate. But their advantage is so slight that a morale-sapping defeat is still very much possible.

Quote
The top three states look very likely to flip; the GOP appears to have smaller advantages in the next three states; the next bloc of three look like something close to pure toss-ups; and the incumbent party is favored in the races after No. 9.

Hey, what about a vote of no confidence? The “write-in” blanks should be available. And they must be included in the reported tallies.  I’ve seen pictures of past ballots that promote infowars.com amongst all kinds of comments indicating zero confidence in the diebold systems.

At least it’s making a statement.

To vote for a qualified write-in candidate, touch Write-in and a keyboard will appear on screen. Type the name of the candidate and press OK.

Apparently it depends on which precinct you vote in, because never once have I seen "write-in" listed as an option.

Looks like it depends on state law. Variances exist for POTUS, for instance.


These States in RED do not allow their Citizens write in voting for Federal Elections!

There is a thing as peaking too soon, and also bottoming out too soon. Obama has hit rock bottom much sooner in the cycle than the elite wanted, much like GW Bush eight years ago. The full scamble mode applies as much to the whole establishment as to the Democrats. "OMG, even MORE Tea Party barbarians may get in this November! Obamacare, the surveillance, the wars might actually be significantly repealed, unless we whip the party leadership puppets in line!" Oh my, my, my.

Bowe Bergdahl 'deserter' investigation is complete - but verdict will not be determined until after November's elections

The Army completed its probe into Bergdahl last week, but the Pentagon said Tuesday it doesn't know when the report will be released
Republicans and former platoon mates of Bergdahl's are wondering what's taking so long

'We explained exactly what happened. He deserted his post...and we're now still sitting here waiting for answers,' Bergdahl's former platoon leader said

If the Army doesn't release its finished review to the public, a member of Bergdahl's platoon said he may file a Freedom of Information Act request

.....

The Pentagon's announcement has Republicans and former platoon mates of Bergdahl's wondering what's taking so long, as the facts of the case appear fairly cut and dried on the surface.
According to soldiers who served with Bergdahl, the 28-year-old willingly abandoned his base several days before he was kidnapped by the Taliban and taken hostage in June of 2009.

For nearly five years he was held captive by the terrorist organization until President Barack Obama and the Pentagon negotiated his release last May.

Acting on his own authority, Obama traded five Taliban commanders who were being held in detention at Guantanamo Bay for the release of Bergdahl, who is now living and working at a base in San Antonio, Texas.

Bergdahl has not spoken out publicly since his return to the U.S. and has reportedly refused to meet with his family in person.

Arkansas Supreme Court Strikes Down Voter ID Law
 AP      | By ANDREW DeMILLO 
  Posted:  10/15/2014 5:45 pm EDT    Updated:  46 minutes ago

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas' highest court on Wednesday struck down a state law that requires voters to show photo identification before casting a ballot, ruling the requirement unconstitutional just days before early voting begins.

In a decision that could have major implications in the Nov. 4 election, the Supreme Court upheld a lower court ruling that determined the law unconstitutionally added a requirement for voting.

The high court noted the Arkansas Constitution lists specific requirements to vote: that a person be a citizen of both the U.S. and Arkansas, be at least 18 years old and be lawfully registered. Anything beyond that amounts to a new requirement and is therefore unconstitutional, the court ruled.

"These four qualifications set forth in our state's constitution simply do not include any proof-of-identity requirement," the ruling said.

Arkansas is among a handful of states where voter ID requirements have been in limbo. Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed new restrictions to take effect in North Carolina but blocked Wisconsin's ID requirement.

"We are thrilled that the Arkansas Supreme Court eradicated this artificial, vote-stealing law," said Holly Dickson, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Arkansas, which had sued to strike the law down. "It was an unconstitutional barrier that has already stolen legitimate voting rights and we are thrilled to see Arkansans' voting rights restored."

Funny that they claim 400,000 Texas voters can't prove they are citizens and live in Texas ....
The reason for this brouhaha is that this is the first time this voter-id law has been applied to a federal election in Texas

Yes there is a cost associated with proving your citizenship identity ... hmmm...

  Supreme Court allows Texas voter ID law for now
  By Jason Hanna and Michael Pearson, CNN
updated 9:03 AM EDT, Sat October 18, 2014

(CNN) -- Texas election officials can go ahead and enforce a controversial voter identification law opposed by the Obama administration and civil rights groups, the U.S. Supreme Court said early Saturday.

The decision comes just two days before early voting begins in the state.

A civil rights leader reacted harshly to the ruling, calling it an "affront to our democracy."

"Today's decision means hundreds of thousands of eligible voters in Texas will be unable to participate in November's election because Texas has erected an obstacle course designed to discourage voting," said Sherrilyn Ifill, President of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

While the court offered no reasoning for its decision, it backs up a federal appeals court ruling Tuesday saying that voting procedures shouldn't be upended so close to the election.

That decision came in response to a federal judge's ruling after a nine-day trial that a Texas law requiring voters to show photo ID at the polls is unconstitutional.

"The Supreme Court has repeatedly instructed courts to consider the importance of preserving the status quo on the eve of an election," the 5th Circuit court said.
...
[ this is why they claim its a poll tax ... it costs you money to get the documentation to prove your identity ...  some how this seems to get back to the Obama birth certificate thing , since we are no longer a country why should you have to prove anything regarding the former country?

Ginsburg said the costs associated with the law -- obtaining identity cards and the documents needed to get them -- aren't as insignificant as backers claim, and argued they harken back to the use of the poll tax in the late 1800s and early 1900s as a method of preventing blacks from voting.
...
The first day of early voting in Texas is Monday. Voters will choose a new governor to replace outgoing Gov. Rick Perry, new lieutenant governor, and new attorney general in addition to voting on one of the state's U.S. Senate seats and several House districts

[ for those interested:}

http://votetexas.gov/register-to-vote/need-id/

In 2011, the Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 14 (SB 14) creating a new requirement for voters to show photo identification when voting in person. While pending review within the judicial system, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its opinion in Shelby County v. Holder, which effectively ended all pending litigation. As a result, voters are now required to present an approved form of photo identification in order to vote in all Texas Elections.

This requirement is effective immediately.

Here is a list of the acceptable forms of photo ID:
Texas driver license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
•Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS
United States military identification card containing the person’s photograph
United States citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph
United States passport

With the exception of the U.S. citizenship certificate, the identification must be current or have expired no more than 60 days before being presented for voter qualification at the polling place.

… black vs white. Is it that stark?

“Anybody who looks at the data realizes that if the black vote, and the brown vote, doesn’t turn out, we can’t win. It’s just that simple.”




Black Vote Seen as Last Hope for Democrats to Hold Senate

By SHERYL GAY STOLBERGOCT. 18, 2014

WASHINGTON — The confidential memo from a former pollster for President Obama contained a blunt warning for Democrats. Written this month with an eye toward Election Day, it predicted “crushing Democratic losses across the country” if the party did not do more to get black voters to the polls.

“African-American surge voters came out in force in 2008 and 2012, but they are not well positioned to do so again in 2014,” Cornell Belcher, the pollster, wrote in the memo, dated Oct. 1. “In fact, over half aren’t even sure when the midterm elections are taking place.”

Mr. Belcher’s assessment points to an urgent imperative for Democrats: To keep Republicans from taking control of the Senate, as many are predicting, they need black voters in at least four key states. Yet the one politician guaranteed to generate enthusiasm among African Americans is the same man many Democratic candidates want to avoid: Mr. Obama. (http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/08/us/politics/in-this-election-obamas-party-benches-him.html )

Quote
“What the Democrats were able to pull off with African-American turnout in places like Ohio in 2012 was truly amazing,” said Whit Ayres, a Republican pollster. “Accomplishing the same goal without the African-American president on the ballot at the top of the ticket is a totally different endeavor.”

Quote
Mr. Issenberg said his rough calculation showed that in Georgia alone, such an effort would cost $30 million. A national effort, he said, would be “resource-intensive on a scale that we’ve never seen executed in a midterm election.”

… Democrats starting to walk out on OBOLA?



Obama makes rare campaign trail appearance, people leave early

Reuters By Jeff Mason

UPPER MARLBORO Md. (Reuters) - President Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday with a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but early departures of crowd members while he spoke underscored his continuing unpopularity.

With approval levels hovering around record lows, Obama has spent most of his campaign-related efforts this year raising money for struggling Democrats, who risk losing control of the U.S. Senate in the Nov. 4 midterm election.

Most candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with him during their election races because of his sagging popularity.

Not so Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown of Maryland, who is running for governor, and Governor Pat Quinn of Illinois, who is running for re-election. Obama plans to appear at an event for Quinn later in the evening.

"You've got to vote," Obama repeated over and over at a rally for Brown in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington.

"There are no excuses. The future is up to us," Obama said.

A steady stream of people walked out of the auditorium while he spoke, however, and a heckler interrupted his remarks.

Obama's help, or lack thereof, may not matter much to Brown, who is 11 points ahead of Republican opponent Larry Hogan, according to an average of polls by RealClearPolitics.

Quinn's race is tighter. He is ahead of Republican opponent Bruce Rauner by 1.8 points, according to the RealClearPolitics average.

Obama is scheduled to spend the night at his Chicago home after the campaign event for Quinn.

Politico Poll: 64% Believe America Is 'Out of Control'
A devastating new Politico poll reveals voters believe America has spun off its axis and is "out of control."
by Wynton Hall  20 Oct 2014, 6:21 AM PDT
...
"An overwhelming majority of voters in the most competitive 2014 elections say it feels as if events in the United States are 'out of control' and expressed mounting alarm about terrorism, anxiety about Ebola and harsh skepticism of both political parties only three weeks before the Nov. 4 midterms," reports Politico.

The poll, which surveyed states and districts in the most competitive congressional races, found that 64% of Americans believe "things in the U.S. feel like they are out of control right now."

Jonah Goldberg Slams Dems’ ‘Demeaning And Sexist’ Appeal To Women
http://dailycaller.com/2014/10/20/jonah-goldberg-slams-dems-demeaning-and-sexist-appeal-to-women-video/

"
First of all, this idea that women, who are the majority of the country and a majority of the electorate, are somehow this homogeneous group who only vote on these very narrow birth control issues is sort of demeaning and sexist if you think about it. But Republicans let the mainstream media get away with this, they let Democrats get away with it. Mitt Romney carried married women by a wide margin.

… North Carolina hit by tsunami of campaign cash $ $ $ $ $.


Tillis-Hagan showdown could be nation’s most expensive Senate race ever

By Jim Morrill
jmorrill@charlotteobserver.com
Posted: Saturday, Oct. 18, 2014

From the Koch brothers and Art Pope to George Soros and Michael Bloomberg, wealthy donors are making North Carolina’s U.S. Senate race one of America’s first $100 million contests.

Outside groups continue to flood the state with ads and accusations, forcing Democratic U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan and Republican Thom Tillis to keep scrambling for dollars in the campaign’s final two weeks.

Money spent or committed in the race is poised to top $103 million, according to public records and interviews with donors. Three-quarters of it comes from party and interest groups. More than $22 million is “dark money” from groups that don’t disclose their donors.

“It’s a stunning number, and it tells you two things,” says Larry Sabato, a University of Virginia political scientist. “That campaign finance is completely out of anybody’s control and North Carolina is a premier swing state.”

The flood of money paid for nearly 80,000 TV ads through Oct. 13, according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis of CMAG/Kantar Media tracking data. At one point this month, that translated to three Senate ads every five minutes.
