WASHINGTON (AP) — The multimillion-dollar Republican effort to tear down the party’s presidential front-runner, Donald Trump, is providing Democrats with a playbook for the general election.
The Associated Press found that 68 different anti-Trump advertisements have appeared some 40,000 times on broadcast television — and the paid-media assault has intensified in the past month.
Democratic groups backing the party’s front-runner, Hillary Clinton, say they are watching the Trump attacks carefully and are poised to recycle some of the same messages if Trump becomes the GOP nominee.
The ads include one in which women read disparaging Trump quotes about women and another that features bleeped-out clips of some of Trump’s coarsest comments.
The AP found that dozens more ads portray Trump as a selfish, deceptive buffoon.
