“Trump and Clinton are both big-money candidates, but in the end, the difference is not so much in the money that they raise but in what they say they are going to do,” said Robert Costa, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who has written about the 2016 election.
“There is a lot of noise in this campaign and, as a result, I think that Trump and his supporters have not been able to distinguish between the rhetoric and substance of the candidates, the message that he is presenting, and the substance of what is actually being done.”
He added, “If there is a big difference between the two, it is probably the money.
It is also the message.”
Trump’s campaign spent $1.1 million on advertising in Iowa, $800,000 in New Hampshire and $1 million in South Carolina.
He also has $2.3 million in TV ads, $2 million in digital ads and $2 billion in digital advertising through an affiliated super PAC.
Clinton’s campaign has spent $842,000 on digital ads through her super PAC and has spent a little over $2,000 per ad, according to a Center for Responsive Politics analysis of data from Kantar Media/CMAG.
Trump’s ad spending in Iowa was significantly higher than Clinton’s in New York, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina, according the Center for Public Integrity.
The Trump campaign, in particular, was active in Iowa in late October, when the state held its primary election.
The candidate himself spent $25,000 there.
The ad spending was particularly significant because of the early state of the primary race.
Iowa, where Trump leads Clinton by more than 10 percentage points, has only about 5 percent of the voting population, compared with 30 percent in New Jersey and 44 percent in Nevada.
The race is so close that the last three days of the campaign have seen at least one ad run in Iowa that was seen in New Mexico, according a review of campaign finance records by CNNMoney.
Trump, in the lead in Iowa for most of October, has been trying to position himself as the “anti-establishment” candidate who is uniting the country behind him.
He has also been airing ads in key battleground states.
He’s tried to paint Clinton as a corporate politician who wants to take us into another war.
In the end he was able to paint her as the one who’s in it for herself, which is very different from what she’s been saying, he said in a Wednesday night debate.
“She’s in this to make a buck,” he said of Clinton.
Trump said in the debate that he had a lot to learn about how to run a campaign. “
If you look at the number of commercials in Iowa and New Hampshire by the Trump campaign this year, it’s pretty clear that she is in this race for her own self-interest.”
Trump said in the debate that he had a lot to learn about how to run a campaign.
“I do have a lot left to learn,” he told moderator Chris Wallace.
“And it’s about time I do that,” he added.
Trump has been spending more time on social media and on Twitter than Clinton has, with about 50 percent more posts on social networks than she has on Twitter, according data from comScore.
Trump also appears to be making a bigger impact on the news cycle with his campaign than Clinton.
The campaign has more than doubled the number on social and digital media posts than the former first lady has, according ComScore data.
Clinton has posted about 4.5 million tweets during her tenure as secretary of state, according an analysis by The Washington Post.
Trump on Thursday began tweeting his daily message, which was posted at 5:30 p.m.
He said that the goal was to “bring the American people together for the first time in a long time” and to deliver “an authentic message to the American voters.”
Trump has also used his Twitter account to blast Clinton’s policies.
He called her “Hillary” on Oct. 10 and later “Crooked Hillary.”
He said during a debate in October that “we need a woman president,” which has become a favorite phrase for Trump, who often attacks Clinton for her gender.
But Trump has often used his personal Twitter accounts to take shots at Clinton.
In October, he retweeted a tweet from a Clinton supporter who called Clinton a “pig” and called the Clinton Foundation “a scam.”
The next day, he also retweeted the Clinton campaign’s account.
“Crooke and @HillaryClinton are disgusting.
@HillaryforAmerica should be ashamed of herself and must be investigated for her disgusting behavior,” Trump tweeted.
Trump in October said that he “would never” support a woman running for president.
“Hillary is not qualified for the presidency and if I were her I would vote for a man,” Trump said.
He added that he thought Clinton had a “very good chance” to
