While Orlando and Tampa place first and second, West Palm Beach is fifth among television markets for presidential spots over the last two weeks — rankings that have held up for months.
On West Palm Beach TV, Clinton also dominates.
“This ad imbalance is one of the stories of this presidential election,” said Michael Franz, co-director of the Wesleyan Media Project, which has been tracking TV spending.
“Trump remains competitive despite being pummeled in the political ad air war. One might imagine that he would be doing even better, perhaps tipping some of the closer states to his column if his campaign were matching Clinton’s ad for ad.”
Trump announced a $25 million ad buy — mostly in such blue states as Colorado, Maine, Michigan, New Mexico, Wisconsin and Virginia. But Trump also is stepping-up TV spots in the battleground states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio.
But he’s got a long way to go to get even close to the Clinton campaign’s dominance of the airwaves, the Wesleyan study showed.
