Kids for Hillary  
My 8-years old son would have voted for Hillary today (if he was old enough for that).
He is definite about it.
His reasoning:
1) First woman President.
2) Care for the environment.

His source of information: YouTube ads.

Hillary raised 64% more funds for her campaign than Trump:
----

MONEY RAISED AS OF OCT. 19
Hillary Clinton campaign:
$1.3 B

Donald Trump campaign:
$795 M

$486.7 million
Party and joint fundraising committees
$60.1 million
Super PACs
----

These money went to political ads and probably significantly influenced the outcome of this Presidential election.

My vote is not as easy to buy though. I voted for Gary Johnson - to send a message to whoever would win this race in what direction they should adjust their political positions.

Netflix + AdBlock => I haven't seen *a single* federal political ad this season (done a lot of reading though).

What does Netflix have to do with this?

> AdBlock

I have AdBlock and rarely see ads on YouTube.

But these ads were in form of videos suggestions on the right side of YouTube.
AdBlock does not catch it.

Besides, I actually didn't mind political ads on YouTube.
There were interesting and not abusive.
Just heavily biased toward Hillary.

I don't watch live TV, hence no ads.
