Survey: Negative Campaign Tone Mobilizes Conservatives, May Help GOP

September 28, 2010 by  

Survey: negative campaign tone mobilizes conservatives, may help GOPA new survey has found that Americans are deeply disappointed with the tone of political discourse, especially during this election season. However, this situation may end up boosting the GOP's fortunes this November.

Already in April 2010, nearly half of those polled by the Center for Political Participation at Allegheny College believed that the level of civility in political discourse had become worse since Barack Obama was elected president.

Now, an update to this survey shows the number of those who are dissatisfied grew to 58 percent. Moreover, approximately 41 percent of Americans said the tone of this year's campaign is worse than in previous electoral cycles, and 61 percent are worried that this hurts the nation's democracy.

The study also revealed that 48 percent of Republican supporters who are dissatisfied are more likely to get involved, while only 33 percent of the Democratic voters said the same. By contrast, more Democrats than Republicans feel turned off by negative campaigning.

"We're not sure whether Republicans are mobilized across the board no matter what the tone of the campaign, or whether the negative tone may actually be mobilizing [them], but [this situation] may lead to big gains for the GOP," said Daniel M. Shea, the center's director and co-author of the new study.

"This is but another bit of bad news for Democrats," he concluded.

    Ever since this criminal administration waltzed into Washington, it has gone out of its way to deceive, blame others, saddle America with generational debt and act as though it has been ‘victimized’ by an ungrateful people.
    Enough is enough. America does not deserve conditions that makes it easy for a would-be Hitler put us in chains. This twisted blend of socialism, communism and fascism is ‘on loan’ from hell.
    Whatever it takes to get rid of this herd of criminals is what is needed and we must have. Pour it on, folks. This may be our last chance to be free. This is the time for turnabout. Throw off this curse, and bless America with freedom.

      There you go again, ignoring the past criminal admin who cut taxes at the same time he was taking us to war, and that is the reason for the outrageous debt we have today.

      Clinton, remember, cut our National debt by 3/4s. He only promised to cut it in half. So we were in very good shape when Bush took over. Same as the state of Texas was when Ann Richards left, the state of Texas had a hefty surplus also, Bush gave large tax breaks to the rich there too. When he left the state was 2nd poorest next to Mississippi. But he at least did not take Texas to war at the same time.

      I have said before, we will never be happy with a Dem. or a Rep. till we get publicly financed elections and cut the largest amount of corruption out of our government, by getting rid of the manipulation of our government by big business, special interests and by foreign governments.

      This nation is so divided in so many ways, the people are so involved with fighting each other and calling each other names, they cannot pay attention to the real problem, the greatest problem and the greatest danger to our country and that is the fact that our politicians are bought and paid for by every special interest group and by foreign leaders, that get our government to do their bidding.

      No wonder we are going down the tubes at a faster and faster rate.

        Same gosh darn liberal rhetoric. When are you going to grow up, give some TRUE facts, and state some RELIABLE sources? Obama bin Laden is the POTUS now and is responsible for everything since January 2009, so get over it! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

            I think all you libs are demanding “sources” since either 1) you don’t want to bother looking it up yourselves, or 2) you want to waste some conservative’s time.

        How do explain that Barry puts himself into the middle of so many controversies and has used the race card every chance he gets? Do you not believe that to be an issue? He has apologized all over the world for us, and we are no longer the strong nation we once were. Yes, there is much corruption on both sides, but I believe the liberals have cornered the market on corruption. I would like to see all those who are self-serving and lacking morals, standards, and ethics get kicked to the curb. We need to turn back to our founders and review how our nation became the greatest nation on earth. I can guarantee you it wasn’t by ignoring the Constitution or ‘spreading the wealth’!

      • lkar

        So Carole, you do not believe in keeping your own money, but rather giving it to the government. You do understand that the government (whichever party is control) does not “give” tax cuts. Tax cuts means that the US citizen is allowed to keep his earned money (it does nto matter if they are rich or poor). Now I do have to agree that if the government is not “collecting” as much of our earned money, the responsible course of action is to reduce government spending.

      • Frank

        You forget that Clinton had a REPUCLICAN controlled Congress.

      • Granny Mae

        Well Carole Howell,
        You got it part right. This government (OBAMA) is bought and paid for by special interrests and all of them communist, or socialist. Our debt wasn’t so huge untill your president started paying his election dues to all the special interrest groups for getting him elected, and he did it with my money ! Get out of the past and start focussing on the present and the future. The past is gone and isn’t coming back but the present is with us right now and will effect us in the future. No president in history has saddled us with a debt of trillions of dollars except this president. This man does not keep secret that he thinks it is the governments ability to know what is good for you and it is not yourself ! He has told everyone from day one that he wanted to transform this country but you thought he was talking about the way you were thinking of transformation and you paid no attention to what he was really saying. Shame on you. With this guy in office this country will never come together. Our thoughts are as far apart as the east is from the west. You cannot mix oil and water nor can you mix communisim and a republic ! We have a constitution that we hold dear and this jerk in office wants to get rid of our constitution and make us part of the new world order. Stuff it in your pocket sweetie and head your self for the closest socialist country you can find. How about Mexico ?

  • Robin from Arcadia, IN

    Every election we get the commercials that sling mud. I have been opposed to this sort of campaigning since I was old enough to listen to the darn stuff. I cannot understand why those who are involved in politics and want to become elected cannot do it on their own merit and not on the ‘history’ of their opponent. I want to know what they have done and what they will do in the future. Knowing who slept with who or who’s kid is in jail is not the issues that they should be talking about.

    • 45caliber

      We consider mud-slinging to be telling lies about your opponent. Most politicians consider it to be telling the TRUTH about them.

      • Granny Mae

        Robin

        Look at what we have in Washington and then look at what is running and you will come to the same conclusion that I did. I think being a crook or a scoundral is one of the qualifications for running for office. Seriously though, you are right , it would be nice to know of the qualifications that each candidate is bringing to his bid for office. To know all the background is important but it always seems the bad outshines the good ! Isn’t it too bad that a person cannot conduct his life after the age of 25 in such a mannor that morals become important first ? What you do in your life will stay with you all your life and it is sure to come to the fore front if you decide to run for office !

    • 45caliber

      None of them on either side can run on their merits. They don’t have any.

      • Claire

        45caliber — Hoorah for you, you speak the truth.

  • Howard Roark

    The Dems have nothing left to fight with. they can not use their supposed accomplishments as campaign tools. (like health care that the majority of Americans did not want)

    All they have left is to try and find something negative and then try and put down their apponent with their B.S..

    For example Bill Clinton was on saying that the Ruplicans are putting up poor candidates. he said that there is a witch and a wrestler that are running.

    I recently was contacted by a Dem poller that was trying to get me to change my vote by telling me some things that the Republican said that were derogatory to Hispanics. I told the poller that I didn’t give a rats patute what the person said but that all I care about is how they are going to vote. I went on to tell her that in fact I am getting sick and tired of hearing Hispanics piss and moan about how bad they have it. The illegal alliens are complaining because they are BEING TREATED LIKE ILLEGAL ALLIENS.

    • 45caliber

      It is fun to mess with the minds of those who call, isn’t it? The last one told me, “Please let me have you talk with my supervisor about this. I can’t say anything.”

      • Granny Mae

        45caliber,

        I have had three calls today alone telling me they were taking a survey and wanted me to tell them who I was voting for! So much for our secret ballot and early voting and all the rest of that junk ! I just hang up on them. I am telling none of them who I am voting for till I mark my ballot. To me this kind of thing is simply voting ahead of time and who knows how they will use that information and why should I tell anyone who I am voting for ? This is really getting ridiculous !

    • http://ahalbert@smart-technology.net Allan Halbert

      Hey Bill Clinton — Almost any candidate is better than a professional politician at this point.

      Dems are going to lose power primarily because they think voters are stupid. And they are pretty stupid for not seeing that. Mike Malloy calls voters “dumber than a bag of sand”. Only holier than thou liberals have the answers.

      Once Repubs do regain power, we have the priviledge and responsibility to show them what happens if they treat us as stupid. I don’t believe they’ve gotten the message yet. The Pledge should have term limits in it.

  • FlaJim

    Negative compaigning is used because it works. Regardless of how many Americans claim they don’t like it, they respond to it.

    In the case of the GOP using it, however, it’s usually just a recitation of recent track records of their opponents. The Dems like to attack on an ad hominem basis, going right back to high school, clothing worn, and actions of their opponents’ children because they have no message. They’re sure not going to use that hopey-changey thing again any time soon.

    • Carole Howell

      Actually the Democrats have the best all round records when it comes to reducing the debt, if Obama does not reduce the debt before he leaves office he will be the first Democrat in the history of the party not to do so. Check the records.

      The Republicans always and with out fail promise to cut spending and reduce the size of government. Then they get into power and do the complete opposite every time.

      The size of government increased under Reagan, and Under both Bushs and every other Republican in their history has increased government spending with out fail. Have you gone through the last few decades with your eyes closed.

      Democrats have the best track record for all the things you complain about and the Republicans the worst.

      Senator Hatch of Utah, a republican, will tell you Bush paid for nothing while he was in office, he left the entire cost of the war off budget and passed the debts on to the next president, did not matter who got elected McCain or Obama they would be saddled with Bush’s enormous debt. Of course if you read any newspapers at all you would have read that, it case you did not, Hatch will freely tell you.

      But if you like the idea of torturing people and spying on Americans I am sure you would prefer the republican party. They gave us the so called ‘Patriot Act’ have you read it? If not you should. Of course I do not approve of Obama extending it either. Not happy with Obama for many reasons.

            Absolutely CORRECT!! Bill Clinton’s ‘surplus’ was instigated by Reagan’s policies, Clinton had little to nothing to do with the accumulation. And the Democrat Congress spent it faster than it could come in. Professor Laffer demonstrated beyond doubt that low tax policies actually INCREASE revenue to the treasury. Read Milton Friedman.

        Lovey…. you need to get out of the sun!! You’re delusional!! All of those government expansions are under Democrat Congresses… or progressive Republicans and UBER-progressive Democrats (’06 forward) in the case of Bush 43. Congress writes the law/pays the bill for it. Let me repeat so I’m sure you’ve got it. CONGRESS PAYS ALL THE BILLS…. PRESIDENTS CONSTITUIONALLY CANNOT SPEND ONE DIME!! Thus hast it ever been since the penning of the Constitution.

        In the case of progressives (R and D), citing their voting records, and quoting them verbatim is called negative campaigning. Hi-liting differences with opponents SHOULD be mandatory in every election. If that’s the criteria…. I’m ALL FOR negative campaigning.

          dam ass,

          I have never had black lung and never have been on welfare.First things first, Dan Scab.Due to safe and clean work conditions I never developed black lung,that was due to the thanks to United Mine Workers.The union mines I work in, we never ever had a fatal accident.You can’t say that about the scab mines,including the one in West Virginia.Can we?The predident that you so admired,Ronald Turn Coat Reagan brought this country to the brink of economic ruin.He sold out to China and Japan our sensitive technology.We are now paying for that .Remember the Reagan and Mondale debate,Reagan said he would share our sensitive technology to the Soviets,Mondale shot back and said he would never let them get their bloody hands on it. BTW, Reagan and Nancy were giving award of one million dollars from the Japanese for jump starting their economy,at the expense of our own.Remember your other hero;George Scab Bush’s disgusting behavior? He puke on the Japanese Prime Minister.He was so spinless that he was literally begging to them,it was a humilating thing to watch,the president of the greatest country on earth bowing down to the Japs.I am proud to be a union man.Unions are the ones that over throw the communist government of Poland,it sure wasn’t the conservatives,all they can say,wait and see.We know who the sell outs are.It was under Nixion and Ford the inflation started,Carter got the blame for it. of course the inflation did drop becuause all of our jobs were going over seas,with the Reagan administration’s blessing. Snother thing Reagan had the lowest IQ of any president,Democrat or Republican and should never be president.He was a mental mess. He was also a scab and a traitor all the way through and our great country will eventually become a third country,thanks to him. Have a nice day.

            God bless you coal miner. Let me just add one piece of information to educate the “unwashed” among us about the importance and effectiveness of unions. The greatest union in the history of the world is The United States of America. It’s a UNION.

            If you aren’t happy with your lot in life and want to improve the living standards for you and your family, then join a union and fight to make your life better. If there is no union, start one. Don’t beg for justice for you and your family, take it! Solidarity.

            If you are not willing to stand up and fight for you and yours, then stop complaining, hiding in the corner where you think it’s safe, and criticizing those who had the guts to risk and come together and fight as a union.

    Yes I’m getting tired of the pollers start telling me that minorities get more chances with the democrats. I said they were correct on that point but yjrr last 4 years all the extra crap money wasting that has went to Indian reservations, when most of it is sent to the dumps and either bartered for booze or the idoitds will not cook it because it isn’t prepared. Sounds just like the blacks and their victom poor me crap. The Mexicans who have lived here for 2 gernerations or more are the whinest laziest pups that can drag their rears almost as good as the blacks. I knew I could fire slow moving whites for dinking around and that was that. Mexs and blacks it took time of filling out logs and constant monitoring, and still I’d have to put up with the poor me s==t and it is our culture crap. Well then get a boat ot a ladder and get the h–l out of here! I would like to show some campaign shots of what the dumbocrat party wastes on special classification of people when everyone is supposed to be treated equally.

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Paul W. Brock

    We are not ruled by a King. The Congress is responsible for spending and budgets. Bill Clinton was dragged kicking and screaming to reform welfare which reduced the roles saving entitlement money. Clinton had a Republican Congress who was pro business (not wall street)The democrats are the darlings of large wall street firms and banks, check the donation list. We had a boom in techs and high employment. A democratic Congress would have never balanced the budget. We had to fight a war against a movement that wants to destroy us after 9/11. Obama and the present democrats are destroying the private sector and with this go the jobs. Everyone cannot work for the government. There has to be someone paying taxes. I believe that be a democrat one has to be totally ignorant of economic reality.

    • 45caliber

      I think, to a liberal/progressive, the belief is that if everyone turned every penny over to the government and then received your income back, that everyone would be rich. And they can’t understand that in this situation everyone would be poor instead.

  • 45caliber

    Well, they CAN’T argue about the issues since both parties agree on them. They CAN’T argue about what’s been done since the Dems refused to allow the GOP to contribute. So the only thing left is mud-slinging. And to a politician, “mud-slinging” means “he told the truth about me”, not that he told a lie. A lie is easy to disprove but the truth is hard to get to go away. And that isn’t FAIR!

        You didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

        You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no
        threat to us.

        You didn’t get mad when we spent over 600 billion(and counting) on on
        illegal war.

        You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in

          coal miner,

          Just how do you perpose we help other Americans?

    • lkar

      WOW. What a nice history lesson. But what is the point? Big government, even under Reagan, is corrupting. So what is the current administartions answer, let’s make the government even bigger and we will root out corruption! Have you seen any of the headlines?

      As to the point of the article, look no further than the cheap shot Alan Grayson campaigned. If I was Webster, I would demand a retraction and then kick his a$$ in the general election.

      • coal miner

        Ikar,

        I wanted to point out how corrupt Reagan was.

    • alpha-lemming

    fltxag, put your blarney franks blow up doll and get a good grip on your self, now take a deep breathe. Feel better, if you are getting up set over .45 and others telling you facts. You are acting just like any typical marxist democrap communist idoit who has gotten deliveryed, feed , given shelter, and educated in the solialist colleges, and never produced a viable good or created anything useful. In short you are a pariastic leech smuck on the USA and taxpayers. Carole democratsd never lower government spending or cut the deficiet, Clinton left office with a collapsed dot com bubble, he also changed the accounting methods of what had been used for decades. Check history. Democraps always cut our defense spending or supplies like parts, both Peanuts, Whorehound and Onumnutts are making and have made our military scavangr parts off of equipment to have something operation. Look at the deaths on the rescue mission that failed durning operation rescue from Iran, slaughter of 100 of thousand of people Rwanda, and Mogadishu. Go cheap and get you a$$ shot off and killed. Democrat are marxist, communist tilting bastards and they will never change.

    Coal Miner quote for the day.

    George Bush’s foot in the Mouth disease.

    New Disease: Gonorrhea Lectim

    The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent
    strain of sexually transmitted disease. This disease is contracted
    through dangerous and high risk behavior. The disease is called
    Gonorrhea Lectim.

    Many victims have contracted it after having been screwed for the past 4
    years, in spite of having taken measures to protect themselves from this
    especially troublesome disease.

    Cognitive sequellae of individuals infected with Gonorrhea Lectim
    include, but are not limited to:

    - Anti-social personality disorder traits
    - Delusions of grandeur with a distinct messianic flavor
    - Chronic mangling of the English language
    - Extreme cognitive dissonance
    - Inability to incorporate new information
    - Pronounced xenophobia
    - Inability to accept responsibility for actions
    - Exceptional cowardice masked by acts of misplaced bravado
    - Uncontrolled facial smirking
    - Ignorance of geography and history
    - Tendencies toward creating evangelical theocracies
    - A strong propensity for categorical, all-or nothing behavior

    The disease is sweeping Washington. Naturalists and epidemiologists are
    amazed and baffled that this malignant disease originated only a few
    years ago in a Texas Bush.

    Gonorrhea Lectim (say it out loud)
