As Election Day nears and new polls showing how tight the race has become, the fate of the presidency could be at the hands of one state. In 2000, NBC’s Tim Russert famously declared it would all come down to “Florida, Florida, Florida,” and this year, pundits predict it may come down to “Ohio, Ohio, Ohio.”
And Ohio residents have probably noticed: according to a new Bloomberg News report, nearly 60,000 presidential advertisements have hit television waves in the state over the last month.
“It would take about 80 days of nonstop viewing to see all 58,235 of the typically 30-second Ohio presidential advertisements that have aired in the last month,” the report notes. The study was compiled by Kantar Media’s CMAG for Bloomberg on ads aired in Ohio between Sept. 24 and Oct. 24.
