Each National and State Election exhibits a tremendous amount of persuasive communication. Two years ago, each candidate for the President of the United States attempted to persuade the country to vote for them through speeches, debates, rallies and advertising. With midterm elections coming up, Senators, House Representatives and Governors are also trying to persuade voters as are former and current POTUS. Without getting political, find or listen to some advertising, talks or debates. Then review the section on Persuasive Communication in the textbook and in a paragraph or less, explain how these candidates for public office (local, state, or national) use persuasive communication to influence. Tie it to what you learned in the text.
