    Same thing on twitter. Do they really think that I am going to vote for some candidate just because I see allot of annoying ads about him (or her) on the Internet? Hopefully they will realize that this is a bad deal.

    I see no point in it because if you were really going to vote for someone that is just popping up in your face all the time, that's not giving your true vote, that's just voting to get them to stop popping up, plus even if you vote I bet that they will still throw adds at you.

    No, politicians are asking me to vote for them but they actually want me to vote for someone else :)

    Anyway, I think that both politicians and "free" services that serve political ads should stop underestimating the intelligence of their voters/users.
