WVII Interviews Brewer About Political Signs

WVII (Channel 7) spoke with Mark Brewer, a political science professor at the University of Maine, about political signs and whether they play a role in campaign outcomes. Brewer said lawn signs have been proven to influence smaller races. “There have been experiments done by political scientists and they show without a doubt in those kind of low information, low profile, low media coverage elections that lawn signs can and do affect the outcome,” he said.
