One of the big issues with Ben Carson's presidential campaign is his inability to connect with the youth of America.
Looking to bridge the gap between himself and the future of our bright country, Carson has taken an unorthodox approach to the campaign trail by letting loose a new radio ad that features a hip-hop song aimed at youth voters.
According to ABC News, the “Freedom” ad will debut on Friday (Nov. 6) and air for the next two weeks in Miami, Atlanta, Houston, Detroit, Birmingham, Alabama, Jackson, Mississippi, Memphis, Tennessee and Little Rock, Arkansas.
Aimed at young black voters, Carson and his team believe that if the Republican candidate can get 20 percent of the black vote, he would defeat Hillary Clinton in a general head-to-head election. “Reaching [young black voters] on a level they appreciated and follow and see if we can attract their consciousness about the election,” campaign spokesman Doug Watts told ABC News of the decision to go with a hip-hop themed ad.
Sadly, I have listened to the song, and it is horrible on so many different levels. As a matter of fact, I think this song may cost him voters in the long run. Catch the "song" here.
