In this quote, Mark McKinnon is suggesting that political advertising is no longer an effective use of campaign funds because people are skeptical of such ads and see through their messaging. He argues that voters now demand authenticity and transparency from politicians, and they recognize that paid political ads are inherently inauthentic and crafted to manipulate rather than inform.

As such, McKinnon believes money spent on political advertising yields very little return and would be better off not spent at all. His view is that campaigns should focus less on advertising and more on promoting their candidates and messages in genuine, credible ways that don’t involve paid media if they want to appeal to and influence today’s voters.
