2022 midterm election ad spending is projected to exceed 2020 Presidential campaign (the previous record cycle) numbers. While this is rare, it directly reflects the tension that has been building this political season. As media consumption habits shift, so have political ad formats. While TV will continue to dominate, the rapidly-growing CTV segment is projected to account for nearly 15% of all political ad budgets, about the same as the entire digital media category.
The percentage of ad dollars flowing to CTV is expected to increase even further as audiences continue to cut the cord. With bigger budgets on the table, candidates are increasingly focused on reaching the right audiences, at the right time. To do so, they’re seeking innovative targeting tactics and new media channels to connect with receptive voters wherever they consume content.
