The Top 25 Negative Political Campaigns of All Time Countdown from No. 25 to No. 1
Add to Wish List
Americans have a love-hate relationship with negative
campaigning, claiming to despise it and ranting about how it
turns off the electorate, while at the same time paying an
increasing amount of attention to negative ads and tactics
during ever-lengthening campaign seasons. Swint gathers the
most compelling of these campaigns from the two "Golden
Ages" of negative campaigning--1864 to 1892 and 1988 to the
present--in addition to some that fall outside those
demarcations, and ranks them in descending order, from No.
25 to No. 1. Mudslingers covers presidential, senatorial,
gubernatorial, and mayoral races and chronicles the
dirtiest, most low-down campaign tactics of all time.
