Past Election Campaigns, Campaign Daily appearance

I joined Keelin Shanley on Campaign Daily today to discuss electioneering in past election campaigns. For those unfamiliar, Campaign Daily is a programme on RTÉ television that takes a daily look at the events of Election 2016. We discussed the cult of the leader, the first use of an advertising agency, the first television election and the use of opinion polling.

You can watch the programme in full here; I appear in the last slot. Please note, the programme is available on the RTÉ player for a limited time only.

This is my second time on the programme. I contributed to Campaign Daily during Election 2011 to discuss 1920s election posters, which you will find here.
