Those with money think that if they can just pour a lot of money into ads that bombard you with emotional information, you will get so angry that you will forget all about logic and common sense and vote against a candidate, no matter how good they might really be or how positive their record might be.
Perhaps you were once cheated by a Swede and most of the Swedes you know go to a church you don't like and your parents and friends also dislike Swedes. The big-money campaigns think they only have to show that the other candidate has Swedish ancestors, or that he likes Swedes (there is a photo of him actually shaking hands with a Swede), and that will persuade you to vote against that candidate in spite of anything he did for you and/or the community while in office.
They are sure that you will get so angry at him for being a Swede-lover that you won't care. You will just want him out of office no matter who might replace him or what that replacement wants to accomplish (other than perhaps passing anti-Swede legislation).
And then they double down. They also have a photo of that other candidate pinching a child's cheek (which they are sure is a sign of a latent child molester) and he does not have any pets which is a pretty good indication that he hates pets and will eventually try to outlaw pet ownership (and there goes Rex).
They are gambling on you now being so incensed at this pet-hating, Swede-loving, child molester, that, no matter what he might do for the community, he has to go.
They thought you were that easy to manipulate.
Ha! Are they in for a surprise.
