That might jsut be correct. In 2016 for the primaries and the actual election Trumphad all the coverage. Most of it the mainstream media hating on Trump. So much so that Hillary didn't get as much time on air as she would have wanted for her policies.And I'm willing to put serious money down (1 dollar?) that if you go back the last 12 years of senate/presidential elections, the winningest candidates are the most covered in media / the most recognizable moreso than any policies or ethics that may be involved. As they say, "any publicity is good publicity"
Any publicity is good publicity. Agreed . . . mostly.
The worst is being ignored by everyone so your name is not out there.
We might be looking at Trump vs Sanders in November.
