Democratic pollster John Anzalone says that Elizabeth Dole‘s “Godless” ad against North Carolina Senate seat opponent Kay Hagan “doomed Dole’s chances to keep the race close.”
Hagan’s numbers “skyrocketed” after the ad was aired.
“It would have been a much closer race [if she didn’t air the Godless ad]. Kay would have won by 3-4 points but instead she won big,” Anzalone said. “I just think Dole, in the end, did herself a disservice. She was going to lose that race, but she did not need to lose that race by that margin.”
As long as we keep pushing back, those kinds of ads will not work for any future candidates. Atheists are not a problem in society. We need to keep calling out anyone who says otherwise.
