Are you sick of the presidential election yet? It seems like this upcoming election cycle has been going on for an eternity now. But with the respective national conventions just happening, we still have a long way to go before we get to vote for president — which also means we have four or so more months of political attack ads to listen to.
Most of us ignore this stuff and have already tuned out the rhetoric. We’ve already made up our minds on which candidate to support.
But should we actually be paying attention? Maybe not to the same old Benghazi stories or how Trump filed for bankruptcy a gazillion times, but to the election cycle in general? Does it have a profound effect on your money — and not just through potential presidential policies? There could be some truth to all the election hubbub.
