Abstract/Artist Statement

This study explores the boomerang effect of negative political advertising. Students in undergraduates will watch two versions of negative political ads, one that is extremely negative. They then will rate their support both the candidate attacked and the candidate originating the negative political ad. The study predicts that extremely negative political ads will lower support for the candidate engaged in the attack.
