Who would be better with the budget? If ad spending vs. votes Daggett is best by a mile.
Let’s trust the latest Rutgers-Eagleton Poll in the New Jersey Gubernatorial electiuon is correct. It shows incumbent Democrat Jon Corzine at 39%, Republican challenger Chris Christie at 36% and Independent Chris Daggett at 20%.
Let’s also trust a graphic in the Wall Street Journal sourced from TNS Media Intelligence/CMAG is correct on television ad spending. Governor Jon Corzine has spend $17.2 million, Chris Christie has spent $14.2 (Christie number includes $5.2 million from the Republican Governor’s Association), and Independent Chris Daggett has spent $300,000.
Let’s do a little division. What candidate is getting the best bang for the buck?
Corzine: $441,026 for every one percent of the vote.
Christie: $394.444 for every one percent of the vote.
Daggett: $15,000 for every one percent of the vote.
If Daggett can be this effective for getting votes for that little of amount of money, what could he do with the state budget?
