Over $75 MILLION SPENT trying to stop Trump – with 64,000 negative ads – and he breezed right on past as if they were standing still.
They forgot about about the spirit of the American people.
“The television ad campaign to defeat Donald Trump was at least a $75.7 million effort, according to the ad tracking firm Kantar Media/CMAG. (Their full estimate: $75,723,580)
It comprised nearly 64,000 ad spots throughout the campaign.
And that’s the figure for broadcast television alone. Anti-Trump ads also ran on cable and satellite television, but the tracking data does not capture that.
A pro-Marco Rubio group spent the most against Trump. Conservative Solutions PAC spent more than one out of every four dollars against Trump — about $19.7 million.
One of their spots — “Serious” — was the most-run anti-Trump ad. It ran 3,939 times.
A pro-Ted Cruz group aired the second-most run anti-Trump ad. “Day One” criticizes Trump among other candidates.
The pro-Jeb Bush super PAC Right to Rise USA spent nearly $10 million, the second-most of any group.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign spent $5.2 million on ads with anti-Trump messages, the most of any presidential candidate on either side of the aisle.
Cruz’s campaign spent more than any other Republican against Trump, some $4.3 million.”
