What do you think? What’s your reaction to negative campaigning?

From page A7 | May 25, 2014 |

Sam Chastain

crossing guard, Davis:

“I don’t think it’s necessary. They say things about each party that aren’t true.”

Joe Na

photographer, Alameda:

“It’s a strategy move. It’s not a good way to present yourself but it’s what a lot of people do these days. They compare themselves with others to make themselves stand out.”

John Hendrix

project manager, Nashville:

“I tune them out and pay no attention. When I recognize that it’s negative, I cut it off right there and then.”

Nick Johnson

student, Chico:

“I don’t think they’re that bad,  but you never know if they’re telling the truth.”

Danielle Patterson

server, Davis:

“I just ignore it.”

Laila Doulaki

food service, Davis:

“It hinders the image of the person putting it out because they’re focusing on the negative of the other person instead of what’s positive about themselves.”

    Study the issues and make up your own mind. If what is said is negative but factual, make up your mind based on it being factual. If it is positive but not factual, ignore it. Truth is what counts! In this same vein: many Measure P signs have been stolen to create the idea that Measure P does not have as large of a base of support which it actually has. If your sign has been stolen (or if you would like a sign), call 220-4314 and I will deliver a sign to you.

    Engaging in a little negative campaigning of your own?

    If a candidate has to resort to negative campaigning, it is because they don't feel sure of themselves on the important issues. Otherwise, a candidate wouldn't feel the need to get down into the mud and start slinging away at opponents.
