Gadarian discusses negative political ads on WRVO

Gadarian,-ShanaShana Gadarian, associate professor of political science, was interviewed for the WRVO segment "Negative political ads up 60 percent from 2014, but can engage, inform voters." "You actually learn more from negative ads than you do from positive ads because they do tend to focus more on policy and votes," says Gadarian. "So, while people may not like the negativity and the tone of the ads, they actually have more policy information and they also tell you where you can learn more about the vote they’re being attacked on," she says. 11/06/18
