What to know about RPA ads that could impact elections in 2020
Posted On July 5, 2021
More than a decade ago, the U.S. government began using automated political advertising to target its political advertising campaigns.
The goal was to reach voters and influence their choices in the 2016 presidential election.
In the months since then, that effort has evolved to include more than 2,000 different kinds of advertising.
While it’s hard to say exactly how much of that has changed in 2020, the shift has come at a critical time for the U,S.
and the world.
In 2020, a majority of Americans will vote for candidates who they believe will improve the nation’s quality of life, and a majority will choose candidates who have an image to match.
As a result, the American public has come to view advertising as an important tool in the government’s effort to sway its electorate in a positive way.
The impact of the automated advertising programs has been mixed.
In 2020, less than 1 percent of the public thinks it has an impact on elections, according to a Gallup poll released last month.
But there are indications that automated ads can have an effect on voting, especially among older Americans and swing voters.
The automated ads used in 2020 are designed to reach people based on their interests and their preferences, but there are some ways they can be more effective than other types of ads, according the American Marketing Association.
The AMA says that these automated messages are more likely to reach a larger share of voters, but the group warns that the use of these messages to reach certain groups is not always appropriate.
The AMA notes that the types of messages that have been used most often are not targeted ads, such as targeted advertising for a health plan, or targeted advertising to show people a news video.
Instead, these types of automated messages include more specific messages like ads that show the name of a celebrity or a video to promote a product.
In a way, these automated campaigns are more effective because they allow for a more personalized message, says Richard Peebles, president and CEO of the AMA.
“If you use these type of ads to sell a product or to make a referral to someone, then you’re using your own data and that’s going to have an impact,” Peeles said.
In 2016, the ABA surveyed more than 6,000 U.s. voters and found that 77 percent of voters say they’re aware of the different types of advertising used in the 2020 elections.
But only 18 percent of them say they are aware of how automated ad campaigns can be used to influence voters.
In 2018, the Association for Public Affairs Research (APAR) conducted an online survey of more than 1,500 U. S. voters.
In that survey, 77 percent said they know that automated messages can influence voters, compared to just 6 percent who say they know it can’t.
And while 77 percent think automated advertising can influence elections, just 7 percent say it can.
According to the AAS, automated messages do have the potential to have a positive impact on voters.
However, the association warns that even if these messages are used in a way that is appropriate and not likely to have any impact on the outcome of the election, they could still be used for partisan or negative purposes.
For example, an ad campaign could use automated messages to target a specific demographic, and it could also use automated messaging to make specific attacks against a particular candidate, according APAR.
“An ad that is targeting someone, in this case the candidate that is being targeted, that is also targeted by the candidate in the same campaign could be the most effective way of targeting them,” P.J. Johnson, executive director of the APAAR, said in a press release.
