What is the purpose of this ad from 1964? Have political ads changed in any way since then?
The purpose of this ad is to control every persons fear of the atomic radiation into a vote for LBJ. They want you to not vote for Goldwater because he’s against nuclear control and voted against the treaty that stopped bombs from being tested. Ads haven’t changed they target a piece of legislation that people are in favor of and point out that this person voted against it. The job is to disestablish the other persons credibility.
