Skip to comments.Best Tested Ad for McCain to beat Obama - Luntz tested it
Posted on 10/15/2008 10:26:39 AM PDT by Frantzie
Luntz tests new anti-Obama ad on taxes from Let Freedom Ring. Notice how these independents react to Obama's tax hike history.
Luntz tested the ad and it was THE BEST ad for McCain to win the election.
Let people know. If McCain runs these ads with his war chest - he will win easily.
I agree that this is a good ad that should be ran.
Lay the premise how often Obama has raised or supported tax increases in the past......This things will hammer him. How are we 3 weeks out and these have been done yet? Mind-numbing....
Luntz is a smart guy and was giddy. This is how McCain can beat Obama. Time to take the gloves off. Hit Obama with this and Sarah Palin. Have a 10 Point Plan To Fix all the crap and also how President McCain will shut down ACORN.
I watched all of their ads and they very simple, succinct and real. No gloom or scary theme music or foreboding female voice.
It looks like real people indicating they aren’t fooled with pretty obvious facts that the McCain campaign has been unable to convey.
Bump for read at home
Check out three dynamite ads from “Let Freedom Ring” including the one in this post:
It stated the concern in a way regular people could connect to it, it directed the blame quickly and in an understandable way at Democrats and advised a cautious vote.
Good commercial IMO.
Good ad, but they also need to point out that Obama has said he’d lower (or at least not raise) taxes on 95% of Americans. HOWEVER, at least 25% don’t pay taxes, so how can he lower taxes on people who don’t pay them? Obviously, people are going to benefiting from the “spread the wealth” Obama Economic Plan.
It’s a very good ad. I’m pretty savvy and I didn’t realize that Obamas “tax cuts” only kicked in after Bush tax cuts were allowed to expire.
Wrong link I think. Luntz said the highest rated one was the one where they dump Fannie & Freddie on Obama. I cannot find the Breitbart link.
Click on the video with the Lady.
November 1 - do a 1 hour show wherever they can get the airtime.
10 minutes with Sarah and McCain jointly to set the stage
20 minutes with McCain discussing the plans for the economy.
10 minutes of biographical stuff (Sarah narrates McCain’s and vice versa)
15 minutes of Sarah hammering on Obama on all issues
5 minutes of thematic wrap-up with McCain and Sarah.
I screwed up.
The correct ad by them is the one where they RIGHTFULLY dump Fannie & Freddie on Obama. Sorry.
Again this is the ad. The Fannie & Freddie blame.
Watch it and let friends know. This is the ad McCain needs to run. Email it to friends.
Caught it on Fox. Excellent ad.
Three weeks of ads like that one by the McCain campaign and its surrogates would definitely have a positive impact on voters in McCain’s favor.
Still, tonights debate is critical in setting the stage for McCain’s final push towards election day.
This is the correct one with Luntz graphs overlaid.
Those Let Freedom Ring ads are everywhere too and very effective.
i like this ad....................................play it 24/7
McCain needs to promise to send wrong-doers in this financial nightmare to jail... black or white, Republican or Democrat.
America has HAD IT and he HEARS US and will take it to DC in January.
Tell America he didn’t spend 5 years in He!! in Vietnam so fat cats in Washington and Wall STreet could rape the American people. He didn’t spend 5 years as a POW to protect our way of life only to hand it over to Socialists.
Take it to THAT ONE tonight. Show THAT ONE you’re mad as HE!! and SO ARE WE !!!
Exposing Obama's LIBERAL, tax-hiking history, would be a good way to win these people over.
Here is the correct ad.
My best friend said the same thing. McCain needs to come out and say “people are going to go to jail.”
These ads are gold. Why isn’t Mac using them?
bump for later
This morning I heard 40%. I assume that they're counting adults of working age.
Because he's running for silver, not gold. He's Dole II. Nice guys, heroic both, but lousy campaigners.
I’ve heard differing percentages, too. Was being generous in giving 75% of our fellow citizens credi for being “patriotic” enough to pay taxes. But, you’re probably right and 40% not paying is closer to right.
I agree with you. McCain seems be running to lose so he can get along with his friends in the Senate.
I must differ with the Dole analogy: Dole quit the Senate to run for Pres, so after Election Day 1996, we was retired from politics. That’s not the case with McCain, he intends to be a gift that keeps on giving.

AWESOME ADS! Loved the chicken button!
I screwed up
That’s o.k. The “nice try senator” ad was a really good one!
The correct one above. The one about Obama totally at fault with Fannie & Freddie.
I have been giving to McCain and the GOP separately but maybe I need to give to this 527 group. McCain needs to run this ad or any other ad that Luntz says is the best.
Take the gloves off now.
Rush has said people around America are finding Obama donations on their credit cards. Watch your credit card statements. Obama’s ACORN goons are donating money to Obama with stolen credit card numbers.
Ssweeet! Sent it out!
I just sent them a hundred. Their ads are right on target with everyday people doing the targeting.
Good job. I will be sending them money in a few minutes.
Here is their ad again with Luntz polling numbers. This is the add they should run - their fannie & freddie ad.
The interestng thing to me is that an ad that says Bush over and over and over again tests so well. I wonder if McCain hasn’t made a mistake in believing his buddies in the MSM and running so far from Bush?
10 billion a month to the war, no easy results, the economy flat lines due to bank crashes. The media and Democrats scream Bush.
Voters can be real lazy.
They are not educated in the facts that the Bush economy was good, that the bank debacles and drop in markets are all Democrat caused.
There is billions in free favorable advertising on top of everything else protecting the DEMOCRATS and their Presidential nominee Obama.

I know the standard view. I was only pointing out that this ad that tested so well said Bush over and over again giving reason to question the standard view.
This ad need to bombard the swing states. Luntz also said that Sarah’s response about taxes in her debate scored high. So McCain needs to focus on taxes in his ads!
Agreed. This ad is devastating. It shows McCain tried to fix the disaster before it happened, that Obama was part of the disaster, that Obama got money and what will Obama do if he becomes President.
