Mccain,Obama, and Clinton had fully operational multi-million dollars campaign.

only 7% of ads in 200 were considered negative 70& of the ads this season have been negative.
PolitiFact Florida | Marco Rubio said "No candidate has run more negative ads in American history than Barack Obama did in 2008"

And that is not counting what he did to Hillary.

That's a stretch... certainly not because of a poster on CD
On a lighter note, Paul came in 2nd several times tonight
FYI, Paul will be around until Tampa

He was? ***GASP*** This state was Santorum's to lose, he was ahead by 17 a week ago.

Great turnout though, MORE than 2008.

Portions of your question are subjective and therefore prejudicial. McCain lost for a myriad of reasons. Study his loss, your candidate is treading a similar path to a larger loss. He's winning by smaller margins and losing where he once won and losing where he needs to win, while ostracizing greater portions of the populace.

Hot mess...

Women and independents are smart enough to see Obama has been a complete and abject failure. Your boss is a one term President. Good luck finding a new job.

At certain points in the campaign Barack Obama aired nearly as many negative or contrast ads as John McCain aired altogether. As a proportion, however, it is clear that most of McCain’s ads were negative in tone."

The Washington Post’s The Fact Checker examined the same claim and cited a study by University of Missouri professor William Benoit who is now a professor at Ohio University. We also spoke to Benoit.

"It is true (Obama) ran more negative ads or ran them more often than McCain, but if you look at the content of the ads to see what they were saying, it was really about the same,’’ in terms of what percentage were negative, Benoit said.
