    Does oft repeated advertising or propaganda work?

    If not, why is so much money spent on it?
    Thanks from Madeline

    Of course it does. Could there possible be any question that it does.

    Now, BEFORE someone points out an ad campaign that was a dismal failure let me amend that stament by saying a skillfully done ad/propaganda campaign works THE MAJORITY OF THE TIME.
    Thanks from Devil505 and Madeline

    Thus, anyone who claims the millions spent by Russia on pro-Trump..anti/HRC advertising did not effect the election is pure is a liar and argues against what we know to be true. (their motive is unknown)

    Of course it effected the election. The only real question is by how much?
    I suggest it was the main cause of Trump's victory.

    If it didn't work, then people would not spend money on it. Of course it works the majority of the time.

    It is primarily effective against the dim-witted. That said, half of the population is of below average intelligence.

    It is not just "propaganda." The company wants you to know about its products so you will buy them, and not the competitor's products. It is harder to make sales when nobody is thinking about your stuff, but everyone knows the competition.

    Some advertising is simply for name recognition, that's true. A sign saying, "Vote for Soandso" says nothing at all about the candidate other than his/her name. It's the memes like "crooked Hillary" or "Democrats are for open borders" that are repeated over and over so that people that Nightswimmer describes will believe them.
    Thanks from Hollywood

    Now we're going to argue the meaning of propaganda?
    What Trump and the Kremlin were putting out was propaganda.
    They're still doing it to this day!
