7:03 pm
survey of 650 people .. was taken the day after last weekend's republican debate. it has donald trump leading .. with 28 percent support. ted cruz was second with 19 and marco rubio just three percentage points behind that. jeb bush .. john kasich and ben carson received the least support. but there's hope yet. 13 percent say they're still undecided. both the democrats and republicans have been flooding the airwaves with their ads .. they're everywhere these days ...on t-v.. and your computer. "7 news" reporter laura thomas... is breaking down what works... and what you should watch for: ------ as the ad wars heat up.. in south carolina.. many of you..have seen them.. online.. on your television.. and in your mailbox.. 21:03:42:18 "you could poke your eye out, pulling some of these out of the box" doctor randy nichols.. keeps a close watch... on
7:04 pm
down with the chair.. of the department of communication.. at limestone college.. to break them down.. for you. nat nichols some of the attack ads.. it's clear who they want you to vote against.. but not for .. "donald trump is not a conservative because he's extreme o abortion" some.. rely on your emotions.. to help change your mind. "i was thinking in my mind, we need to make some changes" ..others use humor.. 0:04 "look, i got the trump action figure" 20:47:22:04 "nobody's going to question kids, they're kids, now if one of the other candidates said this about him, it would come off as mean spirited and we would say, well i wonder if that's really the kind of guy we want" so how effective are these ads? some studies say.. that answer... depends on your age. 20:55:27:08 "the older voters they've seen it all and done it all... so they're less likely to change their vote because of any media" and nichols tells us.. don't underestimate.. ads that make the candidate.. feel more like your friend. 0:48 "most important prep for big game or speech? make sure there's water nearby" ..that "likeability" factor.. can be pretty persuasive too..
7:05 pm
relate to the speaker or the writer of this message, and it's sometimes more powerful than we believe" laura thomas, seven news. nichols' best advice... is to analyze the ad... first... before you make a judgment.. take a step back ... and see what the ad is saying.. and maybe even most importantly... "who" is saying it. tonight the results are in for our two-day...exclusive "7 news" online poll. more than -13- hundred of you have weighed in. about two thirds of you identified yourselves as "republicans" we also looked at endorsements... specifically governor haley's support for marco rubio. but most of you ... nearly 90 precent .. said the governor's endorsement didn't matter. so...with a margin of error of plus or minus three percent... about 44 percent of you..said you're voting..for donald trump. marco rubio.. finished a distant 22 pecent. and ted cruz..the only other candidate in double 15 percent. last thing...the so called establishment candidates...rubio, kasic and bush...combine their support

there are those who say we cannot defeat a corrupt political system and fix a rigged economy. but i believe we need to lift our vision above the obstacles in place and look to the american horizon. to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. where a good job is not a wish, but a reality. where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all.
7:13 pm
there is time for rest and grandchildren. a nation that defends our people and our values, but no longer carries so much of that burden alone. i know we can create that america if we listen to our conscience and our hearts and not to the pundits and the naysayers. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message,
