21. They could have spent twice as much and still lost....

There is a point of diminishing returns on any investment and I think it was reached in this election.

The reason the turnout was lower is because so many people were repelled by the sewer that political advertising has become. Plain and simple.

The people who are out there who aren't wired in like we are here don't pay attention as much as we do. With the news media as it is, no one really trust anything that is put on any news. It's all opinion and slant and that is why the ratings for news has dropped dangerously.

We have in ill informed population swayed by emotions and other wise disengaged from the process.

Welcome to the beginnings of Idiocracy.
