    When you vote are you swayed by political advertisements?

    print, communication (telephone or mail) and broadcast.

    Never.  I always do my own research and make sure it is from unbiased, creditable sources.  Far too many let the media guide them, but often that guidance is misdirected and is confusing to the masses.

    No, I do take notice of them and then do some research of my own to find out the facts....which are rarely fairly represented in political ads of any kind.

    No! Political advertisement has a negative effect on me. I tend to be wary of it. I'd have more respect for a candidate who provides a website w/ facts and proposals for solutions  than one who wastefully spends on pre-paid propaganda and mud-slinging rubbish.

    Absolutely.  Political advertisements ensure I don't vote at all, so I'd say they have a big influence on me.
