New data from FairVote demonstrates that, in terms of dollars and media effort spent on winning voters over, ever fewer matter in America's Presidential contest.
"Battleground state"� was a term most Americans heard a lot during the last election, but chances are, your state was not one of them. In 2004, a whopping two-thirds of the states were unabashedly ignored. They didn"t see a TV ad, get a visit from a candidate or experience much, if any, campaign presence. Voters in most of the country had absolutely no chance to air concerns about local issues.
The report is available on FairVote.org.
