For the second straight week we had a close result, ultimately a 53%-47% split, yet more people said that ads have not affected their beliefs about candidates.
216 readers expressed this opinion while 190 people asserted that ads had changed their views about a candidate. Still, don’t expect TV ads to go away anytime soon.
