    I don't see how it's consistent with the "rapid decay" evidence.  AFAIK, advertising does matter more when candidates are unknown (thus "defining" them).

    Hm, let's see...looking at the polls, Romney's favorability more or less rose throughout the campaign, and by the end he was on positive ground.  His unfavorability rose around February and more-or-less stayed constant after that.  I would assume a lot of that was the Republican nomination battle.

    •  Romney's favorability was positive (0+ / 0-)

      and Obama's was negative, yet he won? Or is that just the average over the entire course of the campaign?
