DONALD TRUMP TO AIR TV ADS IN SWING STATES AFTER GETTING PUMMELED BY CLINTON

Donald Trump’s campaign is finally going up on the airwaves after leaving the paid advertising battleground uncontested for the general election campaign.
The ads are set to air in four battlegrounds where Trump is underperforming: North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The ads were announced during a conference call with members of Congress, some of whom griped about Trump’s performance on the call, according to the paper.

The general election has featured a stunning disparity on the air so far, a reflection of Trump’s victory in a 16-member Republican primary where he got dramatically outspent by Florida Governor Jeb Bush and others yet still prevailed by relying on ‘earned media’ – largely TV interview and tweets.
Clinton’s campaign has dominated the air for two months, spending $61 million on ads. Pro-Clinton outside groups have kicked in another $43 million, per totals compiled by NBC, for a total of $104 million.
Trump’s campaign has spent nothing so far, although outside groups spent a combined $12.4 million, leaving Clinton with a nine-to-one advantage.
The Trump camp trumpeted its most recent monthly campaign haul, which brought in $82 million, and Trump has crowed about his personal contributions.

 As NBC’s ‘First Read’ noted Tuesday morning, just hours before the ads were announced, ‘The Green Party’s Jill Stein ($189,000) and Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson ($15,000) have spent more on ads than the Trump campaign ($0) in this general election.’
A new Monmouth poll in Florida gave Clinton a 9 point lead, 48 to 39 per cent. Clinton now leads in Ohio by 2.6 per cent in the RealClearPolitics average. And she leads by 9 per cent in an NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll in Pennsylvania.
