For the first time in American political and spending history, 63% of all spending for the 2022 midterm election is “issue” oriented.

These are ads on issues such as:

  • Abortion
  • Inflation
  • Gas
  • Crime

And more…

This included Political Action Committees (PAC) for ballot initiatives and referendums.

This is up over 2022 and 2018.

The total forecast for political spending in 2022 is $96 billion for broadcast, cable, streaming, and digital platforms. This does not include the millions spent on direct mail – See Giant Ad Spends: How the midterm elections are creating record-breaking ad spends that are impacting you.
