Japanese Election Strategies (Clip 1 of 2)

This clip is associated with the Campaign lesson plan. City council candidate Yamauchi campaigns by canvassing in a van and repeating his name over and over again on a bullhorn. His advisor tells him, "people only listen to you for 3 seconds." Students should discuss whether these or and other campaign strategies contribute to or detract from the election process.
