MoveOn Ad Works With Independents

Seems they don't like the idea of being in Iraq for 100 years either (from The Hill)’s controversial “Not Alex” ad did not sit well with Republicans, but it scored well with Democrats and independents, according to a recent survey.

“Not Alex,” which debuted in June, features a young woman with a baby boy named Alex sitting on her lap. She says, “John McCain, when you say you would stay in Iraq for 100 years, were you counting on Alex? Because, if you were, you can’t have him.”

A plurality of the poll’s respondents, 34 percent, rated the ad as the “most effective” out of a group of six campaign television commercials. Eight percent of Republicans said it was the “most effective” compared to 55 percent of Democrats and 44 percent of independents. The poll was conducted by Wilson Research Strategies and The Hill newspaper.
