No, it doesn?t. I try to look at what their records are.

Unfortunately, negative advertising does affect how I vote. In the end, the issues get clouded.

Yes. It makes you think negatively about what is being advertised. I prefer to think positive.
- Wendy Hall, 62, Yuba City
Generally, I don?t pay attention to the advertisements. I look at where they are getting their funding; a lot of it is what I read in the newspaper.
- John Scanlon, 47, Granite Bay
No, because I don?t pay attention to the ads on TV. I read all the information that comes from the Secretary of State on candidates and propositions and I vote on that, not on party loyalty.

It does, but it shouldn?t. That?s why they do it all the time. They should just go by the issues, and not the negative stuff.
