We’re number one! We’re number one!
No, Connecticut has the dubious distinction of being number one in nasty. According to the study released this week by Kantar Media/CMAG with analysis by the Wesleyan Media Project, Connecticut’s gubernatorial race is the King of Mean.
Connecticut’s race doesn’t just have the lowest percentage of positive ads, at a mere 15 percent, it has also has the greatest share of purely negative ads, at 69.6 percent.
We’re number one, yet I’m so not proud.
Connecticut is also 13th out of the 15th most expensive gubernatorial races this cycle, with $15.2 million spent through Oct. 23. If you break that down by our 3.596 million 2013 census population, that’s $4.22 per person spent on mudslinging.
