Feel sorry for the top 13 states saturated with political ads

Media

Because the presidential election will be decided by independent voters in just a few swing states, the campaigns and outside groups are flooding those markets with political ads.

That makes for several months of monotonous commercial breaks ("I'm Mitt Romney/Barack Obama and I approve this ad," "Paid for by the...," etc.).

NBC News has a list of the top 13 states getting the most political ad money:

1. Florida - $117.4 million

2. Ohio - $112.1 million

3. Virginia - $85.7 million

4. North Carolina - $56.5 million

5. Colorado – $54.2 million

6. Iowa - $46.6 million

7. Nevada - $38.2 million

8. New Hampshire – $25.3 million

9. Pennsylvania – $19.3 million

10. Wisconsin - $8.1 million

11. Michigan - $8 million

12. Minnesota - $3.2 million

13. New Mexico - $49,000

Though Pennsylvania and Michigan are on the list, the Romney campaign has stopped putting ad money into both, according to Talking Points Memo. An electoral map produced by Politico currently shows Obama winning both states.
