Analysis of Obama’s 30 Minute Ad and Countdown to Election Day

    The Barack Obama campaign bought close to four million dollars worth of thirty minutes of TV prime time air for Obama’s ‘closing argument.’ CBS, NBC, FOX and the Spanish-language Univision broadcast the infomercial last night. Did it sway uncommitted voters? We talk to EVAN TRACEY, Founder and Chief Operating officer of Campaign Media Analysis Group, which provides non-partisan data on political ads.
    We’re also in the last days of Election Day campaigning. What do we watch for? McCain and Obama are still working the battleground states and more GOP members are endorsing Obama. We speak with DAN PAYNE, Boston area media consultant who has worked for Democratic candidates around the country and TODD DOMKE, Boston area Republican political analyst, public relations strategist and author.
