    is that low information voters can't be reasoned with, they form their opinions on bias and perceptions rather than reality, thats why its easier for the right to argue their side, once they have ingrained their argument into the equation most targeted voters aren't interested enough to disseminate information that is contradictory to their opinion, ignorance is bliss seems appropriate here.

    •  This Avoids Both Fact and Argument, It Presents (3+ / 0-)

      a guy who'll say anything, including making the liberal case on every point.

      It's a man whose word is clearly shit.

      Couldn't be a more pure presentation of character for low information low reasoning voters, I'd think. Subject to focus testing of course; the customer is what it is.

      and it's way back in our lizard brain. There's just no avoiding blatant evidence that someone isn't being straight with you.

      This idea would make amazing ads, IMHO. However, we're very close to being past the point where character ads are going to matter much ...

    •  That's why the Ronney v Romney ad (0+ / 0-)

      has to be as simple and stark as possible. One clip has him say yes and the other no. Then the word Huh?
