More on TV Ads and Presidential Elections

In my last post, I was telling about the Brazilian influential incentives for parties to coalesce based on the share of TV advertising a party holds. I just played around with those data I have gathered to produce the following chart. It’s not colors-representative of the parties, which would take a while to adjust. The interesting thing about this chart is that you can have some interaction with the data by selecting a combination of the information you want on it. Clearly, in the next steps I want to predict vote share (y axis) given a certain amount of advertising (x axis).
