    as your entire data sample. You also choose to ignore 2010. But election results alone do not tell the whole story. How much were the margins affected? How many potentially competitive races never materialized as such because of the outsized influence of certain groups? How badly were down-ballot, usually low-budget, grass-root races skewed by outside groups doing 90% of the total spending?

    Even more importantly, the policy implications of Citizens United are obvious. Policy agendas are and will continue to be heavily swayed by the power-brokers with the most money to throw around in the elections.
