Typically, a U.S. consumer spends 25 hours each month engaged with Internet media, versus over 150 hours engaged with television according to the Television Advertising Bureau. In spite of this claim, it is undeniable that digital advertising will play a larger role in the 2012 election cycle than at any point in history.
