We've all seen them and heard them: Candidates for public office telling us why we shouldn't vote for their opponent...what their opponent has done in the past that's "bad" for the voters he or she wants to represent.  But why?  Are the ads themselves effective in convincing voters?  Or are politicians just trying to deflect negatives from themselves?
