Andy Hasselwander, Senior Vice President Products and Research, Latinum Network says that Millennial voters are just as diverse as the general population.  His analysis of voting patterns in 2016 revealed that density of population was a strong indicator of voter sentiment and that anger more than fear drove people to the polls.  He also cautions about the growing tension between cultural openness and cultural isolation within our society.

Kip Cassino, Executive Vice President, Borrell Associates shares details about total ad spend on broadcast television, cable, digital and traditional media in 2016 presidential, state and local races.  No surprise that digital has increased eightfold from 1.7% of 2012 budgets to 14.4% in 2016. 

Kip suggests that trends point to the accelerating move from mass to targeted communications and that the future looks grim for television ads as more money moves to social media and online programmatic ad buying.  Mobile ads will be the real story in 2018.
