Ad Watch: Harry Reid on Jobs

Powerful stuff:

These ads are compelling not only on in their message -- that Harry Reid has delivered thousands of new green jobs to Nevada in the way that only a leader in Congress can -- but also in their delivery. Notice the silence in the ad, the lack of the standard background music of virtually all other political ads. These spots are different, which will help them stand out. The imagery is also striking. In the first ad, in particular, the narrative arc of the man going to work at a new job in the morning fits perfectly with the broader message of helping Nevadans get back to work. Great spots.

fine ads....

But does anyone still believe Rasmussen showing Angle up 11 (post-primary bounce).?  I still think Reid is in some trouble, though not down by 11.  The anti-Washington theme is still very strong, and Nevada could be one of the few Tea Party triumphs--the libertarian streak is very strong there.

RE: fine ads....

I never believe Rasmussen, but I suspect Angle has very low name recognition at this point, which makes the race Unpopular Majority Leader vs. Generic Republican.  Hopefully as people become more familiar with her kooky views Reid's standing will improve.

Those are really good ads.  The silence is excellent; the way they fit a little documentary into 30 seconds, incredible.

I'm not a huge fan of Reid's from a progressive standpoint, but I certainly want him re-elected.  And these ads are different, and really stand out.  Brilliant work, and kudos to the teams that created them.
