So far this political season, there have been more than 40,000 television ads in 10 states, with $6.2 million spent in the nine days leading up to the Iowa caucuses, and the New Hampshire primary. The result is as many as 155 ads a day in New Hampshire, and one wonders if this may actually result in voter backlash.
 
"We're seeing no evidence that advertising is tapering off. It's more of everything," said project leader Ken Goldstein of the University of Wisconsin in Madison. "When all is said and aired in Iowa, the Democratic presidential candidates will have spent more than $100 per caucus voter on TV alone," he said. Get ready for the flood of political ads coming to a state near you.

Thats an enourmous amount. If I am not mistaking we had 100 million voters in 2000.

10,000,000,000 Billion on ads alone? Thats absurd. It does say caucus voter so I am sure that number is not anywere near as high, but still....It must be extremely high.

We could solve this problem if we would all get together and amend the constitution. Make it so business of any sort and political interest groups can't give any money to politician or advertise for any of them. Also limit campaign contributions to 100 dollars and no donating money in someone else's name. Till then our politicians will only serve who pays.
