Politics advertising political advertising marketing campaignA new Borrell Associates report found that $159.2 million will be spent on digital advertising and email marketing this sales cycle.

To put that into perspective …

That represents a minuscule 1.5% of total political ad spending across all channels

TV, direct mail, telemarketing and other media channels account for more than 98% of the $9.8 billion that is estimated to be spent by the conclusion of this election cycle.

Look forward to your responses.
