FairVote Study: Texas gets least spending, attention from Prez contenders

by Jack Santucci // Published November 3, 2005
FairVote's newest study Who Picks the President? finds Texas - formerly competitive and an Electoral College whopper - gets the least attention from Presidential candidates. The finding is part of a broader trend; ever fewer states receive campaign spending and attention in general.

Also concluded: 60 percent of voters nation-wide are irrelevant to candidates.

The report is a sequel to The Shrinking Battleground, which discusses the extent to which ever fewer states and voters matter in presidential races.
