Flemington, NJ, August 8, 2008 – Results of a national focus group conducted among 311 self-reported Democrats, Republicans and Independents revealed that a majority of all parties believe that Paris Hilton's new political ad will help her reputation.
The study was conducted by HCD Research during August 6-7 to obtain Americans’ perceptions of a new ad by Paris Hilton, in which she mocks a recent ad by John McCain that features her and Britney Spears.
While viewing the video, participants indicated their levels of interest by moving their mouse from left to right on a continuum. The responses were recorded in quarter-second intervals and reported in the form of curves. Participants were also asked pre- and post-viewing questions regarding their support for the candidates.
