Proving that money can’t buy you love, Romney’s 47% remarks have been viewed 8.8 million times in 7 days, in contrast with a combination of the Romney and SuperPAC “Fine” ads, which only got a combined 2.3 million views. The Romney campaign’s biggest ad buy of the election, the “Fine?” ad, launched in mid June and only got 1.5 million views by September 18.
Jansing & Co reported this morning that the leaked secret footage of GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been viewed 8.8 million times and has 50,000 comments.
On September 18, the day after the Mother Jones video was leaked, Visible Measures reported that Romney’s 47% video had 2.4 million hits. To put this in context:
We also looked at Romney’s biggest ad campaign of the election season, Fine?. It takes advantage of Obama’s political gaffe, when Obama said that the “private sector is doing fine.” Fine? has driven 1.5 million views to date (it launched in mid June), nearly 1 million views less than Romney’s 47% footage has generated in less than 24 hours.
