Tom Steyer spent an astounding $19.2 million on TV and radio advertisements in New Hampshire, more than the next seven major spenders joined. However, Steyer got a measly 10,454 votes in the New Hampshire primaries on Tuesday night, as per the Washington Post.
That implies he spent about $1,837 for each vote. People truly can’t purchase an election.
The next greatest spenders were Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, and Andrew Yang, who dropped out of the race on Tuesday night. Sanders and Buttigieg performed best, however certainly not because they spent the most; Sanders spent $5.3 million, not exactly 33% of what Steyer paid for advertising.
Steyer, a billionaire fence fund manager whose claim to fame is the anti-Trump Need to Impeach campaign, has attempted to carve a niche in the packed 2020 field. Creating electability is an art, not a science.
As Elizbaeth Warren simply took in, there’s no measure of positive media coverage that can insure voter turnout. What’s more, as Steyer should know, people can’t purchase their approach to popularity. Presently, he should tell Michael Bloomberg.
