Voters Have Seen Enough Ads | VideoChris Williams | 11/1/2012
"I switch stations," said Williston resident Dean Christopherson.
"It`s too much, it`s overwhelming," said Williston resident Herman Probst.
"Usually just mute it or flip the channel to something else," said Williston resident Tyler Peterson
The Washington Post says around 85 percent of the presidential ads are negative, and that`s what some don`t like to see.
"Say something real, telling the truth. Saying something not what we want to hear for the votes. Something that we can rely on, but that hasn`t happened in a long long time," Probst added.
Research says negative ads work because our unconscious minds are highly reactive to threat, but not everyone buys that.
"I vote for who I want to vote for, I do my own research. It`s just a bunch of back stabbing back and forth for the most part," added Peterson.
The candidates for Senate in North Dakota have spent around $16 million. Critics say that money could be better spent in other ways.
"Help the people in New York and New Jersey, or come build some roads out in western North Dakota. Our infrastructure needs more help than we need another political ads," Christopherson added.
All three of these voters agree that there have been too many ads this election, and they are looking forward to one thing.
"Just ready for it to be over," Peterson added.
They only have to wait four more days.
