The election rolls on and as the mud continues to fly, we thought it was worth noting that as an industry, advertising donations have swung blue. You aren’t surprised are you?

According to Open Secrets, in 2008, advertising folk gave $3,249,948 to Dems and $1,908,833 to Republicans. In 2004, the cash gifts were much closer with Dems receiving 59% to the Republicans 40%.

While advertising trends blue overall, the last time it was a 50/50 split was in 1996, Bill Clinton Vs. Bob Dole.
