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

By 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.”
